Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Design Team

*Note this is my second post for today.
Please scroll down to see my Reverse Confetti Fall-idays
project and CAS(E) This Sketch card or click here. Thanks!

I have some exciting news to share!
I have the wonderful honour of being asked to join the
Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Design Team!
This team is filled with amazing designers and I'm thrilled to be joining their team!

Our October 15th Challenge is going live today:

 I love the fun patterns on these pumpkins,
so I dug through my patterned paper stash to find
some similar patterns to make my card.
I used my Simon Says Stamp Hey Pumpkin stamp set and stamped the
image of the cat and pumpkin on my card.

I coloured in my cat using some ink spritzed with water and a paintbrush.
I stamped the pumpkin on the yellow polka dot patterned paper and cut it out by hand
to paper-piece it.

I stamped the pumpkin two more times on the other two pieces of patterned paper
and then, taking a sharpie fine liner, I drew the outline of the pumpkins a little smaller.
I cut these out and tucked them behind the yellow polka dot pumpkin.
I drew the stems onto my card and coloured them in like the cat.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

for the challenge details and to play along with us!

Thanks for looking!

Congrats on your new opportunity! I love your stamped images on this. I have a cat that is the same color, and I've often wondered how to color him from a stamp. You did it just right!
