Paper Sweeties November Inspiration Challenge #61

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Hey, y'all!  November will be upon us before most of you ever read this; and that means a fabulous, new, inspiration challenge is up over at Paper Sweeties.  The graphic below inspired me to create a little number in celebration of the upcoming, Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States.  Here's my take on it.
I started this card by stamping and masking Jake; the wagon and leafy pumpkins, fittingly, from Sweeties Wagon; and basket of apples from Stand Add-On: Fall Harvest on a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of watercolor paper.
All of the images, including the pumpkins from Stand Add-On: Fall Harvest and Jake's clothing from Gobble Gobble, which were stamped on scrap pieces of watercolor paper and hand-cut out, were stamped in Jet Black, waterproof ink and watercolored.
The hand-cut set of pumpkins were popped up, with foam tape, in front of the wagon and basket images; and the apples received a healthy dose of Glossy Accents.  The "Happy Turkey Day" sentiment from Gobble Gobble, which, too, was stamped in Jet Black ink, creates a playful wish for such a special day.
The buckles around Jake's waist and on his hat were given a hint of shine with a glitter Jelly Roll pen.  Before his hat was popped up with foam tape, the top edge of the prepped piece was dressed up with a strip of multicolored, floral, patterned paper; the entire thing was framed with Ruby Red cardstock and red-threaded, straight, machine stitching; and a length of Baker's Twine was wrapped around it three times, just below the patterned print, before being tied, in a bow, near its left edge. 
The watercolored piece itself was then popped up, with more foam tape, in the center of the Kraft, cardstock, card face; and a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and embellished with a lone, red gemstone, complete the look.
Here's this month's Inspiration Challenge #61 graphic to get you creating in the right direction.
