Yet another photo that doesn't do the card justice. But I have a cunning plan! Him indoors has just bought a new new camera, so once he gets to grips with it, I can press-gang ask him nicely to be my official photographer :)

I've used shimmery cardstock for this card - it's fab for watercolouring as the ink doesn't sink into the card too quickly so you have a bit more time to move the ink around. And it's got a gorgeous gentle sparkle to it. Trust me, you need some ;)

A square of pumpkin CS has been stamped with the swirl from Baroque Motifs using Versamark, embossed with clear embossing powder and mounted onto a white card base. The flower has been stamped with black Stazon (waterproof ink) on a circle of white shimmery cardstock, then coloured using various inks and an aquapainter. This has been added to the pumpkin layer along with some pear pizzazz ribbon. The sentiment has been added to an oval of pear cardstock and attached using, you've guessed it, dimensionals. I just can't seem to make a card without them!
