Harvest Time

I'd been pondering the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for a couple of days and couldn't come up with anything to make.  But then I saw the challenge at Friday Mashup and finally had an idea!



I looked through my stamp sets for a fall-ish set and came across Gifts of the Earth.  So I stamped the harvest image onto some Watercolor Paper and colored it using many, many different inkpads.  (Edit:  I just realised that what I thought was an eggplant is actually a marrow.  So for the purpose of this card, let's all just pretend that this is a really, really big eggplant LOL) I then found some really old (2006) DSP called Outlaw and chose a couple of fall-ish patterns.  One of the patterns had the two stars already punched out of it so I decided that rather than cut around them, I'd incorporate them into my card.  

The sentiment came from the Wetlands set and was stamped in Early Espresso onto the DSP.  A couple of Pumpkin Pie Candy Dots finished off the card.


  1. Create a project with a "Fall/Harvest Food Theme (Preserves, Apples, Pumpkins etc.)."
  2. Create a project using "Paper Piecing."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Fall Food themed project with some Paper Piecing "

Thanks for looking.

I would have thought it was an eggplant, too. I wonder how many times I've made that mistake? It's a beautiful image and you've turned it into a wonderful fall card!
