It's my week as hostess on the Inspired By All The Little Things challenge blog! I have the fabulous Marisa Ritzen as my Guest Designer this week - so be sure to head on over to the blog to see what she's created to share with us. I really love this week's inspiration photo, but really struggled to figure out what I was creating! I love the colours, the textures, the soft lighting - everything. But do you think that I own a pumpkin stamp?? No. Not on it's own... so I stretched my thinking a little bit, working more with the colour palette and the harvest feel of the photo. Here's our inspiration:
Art Impressions Watercolour Sets, and I've used eleven different stamps to create my scene. They're designed to work together, and I simply coloured directly onto the rubber stamps with my Marvy & Tombow markers, then softened the lines with a damp paintbrush. I went back and painted in a few areas that needed a bit more colour, like the pumpkins, and added a few shadows and contrasting colours. There was a bit of masking involved to stack all those veggies together!
