Verve Stamps is providing us with some wonderful pre-release sketches to work on (release party is on Friday, October 8th on the Verve forum at SCS). With the sketches come the chance to win some free Verve so no need to ask me twice if I want to participate LOL!
I combined the first sketch with this week's Curtain Call colour challenge. Just love the fall colours Stacey came up with, and when I saw the mustard, I decided to make my very first punched pumpkin. I have seen these around SCS and blogs for a few years now and have always wanted to make one.
Since the square was on the smaller size, I used the large oval punch for the job. Five punches and some assembly of ovals later, and I had my very first pumpkin :) I cut out a stem and curled some thin strips of Old Olive for the vines. Darn vines took longer to curl and make than the card as the paper kept ripping! Some mustard coloured ribbon from one of my Michael's ribbon bin diving adventures finished things off nicely. Yes, I do check that darn bin (my polite name for the bin LOL!) every time I'm in there. Now if they would just leave a "discard bin" from my prior visit out it would make life so much easier LOL!
Just noticed my poor little pumpkin hasn't been sponged, but that will have to wait until the next one I make as I am on a mission to get four more sketches done. Off to work on the next one! See you soon :)
