Watercolored Pumpkin by Holly Brown

Hi Junkies!  It's Holly posting today and I'm sharing this pumpkin that I watercolored with Daniel Smith paints.  I stamped the Pumpkin with a dark green permanent ink onto watercolor paper.  After it was completely dry, I watercolored the image.  While that was drying, I started thinking about making my own plaid background with the same green color that I used on the pumpkin leaves.

So I used another piece of watercolor paper and three different sizes of brushes to draw the plaid lines.  The green paint is called Green Apatite Genuine from Daniel Smith, and it's perfect for a rustic handmade background.  I cut the piece down to fit onto a card and then wrapped some brown ribbon around it.  The pumpkin was cut with an oval die and affixed to the card.
