Pumpkin Jack and New Challenge at MHK Designs

     Our new challenge starts this morning at MHK Designs and we have another wonderful inspiration photo with lovely colors as well.  You can use either the photo or the colors as your inspiration.   As another option, you can use an image from MHK Designs and the theme is then "Anything Goes," even without the inspiration photo.  I used MHK Designs "Pumpkin Jack" set for (both image and sentiment), and then used as many of the colors as possible.

     Here's my card and the inspiration:



     The image is colored with my Lyra pencils, then fussy cut.  The rectangle and both doilies are cut with Cheery Lynn dies.  Everything is layered onto deep forest CS, and the sentiment is hand cut.  I used my ProMarkers to dye the roses the exact colors I wanted.  Originally, they were all white.

     I love the vintage feel of this card.  It just complements the pumpkin so well.  :-D

      I hope we're going to see you playing along this month.  Remember, the challenge runs until October 20 so you have plenty of time to create and enter.  We love being inspired by each of you just as much as we love making something which might inspire you.  See you at MHK Designs!  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
