Happy Harvest and Weekend Sketch 58

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Once again, late in the day with my posting. However, you will notice that I have not one but two cards for you today. These are both projects that I will be displaying for my Open House on the 28th. For the first card I used the color combination of Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Appeal and Regal Rose and Always Artichoke. I watercolored the truck from the Loads of Love set with aqua painters, watercolor pencils and inks on watercolor paper. The trees in the background were stamped and off-stamped with Always Artichoke and Mellow Moss; and then I sponged Apricot Appeal ink around the edges just to give it a bit of spunk.
The second card is the one I did for Beate's weekend sketch. I used Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Pink Piourette, and a piece of scrap that was as close to Kraft paper that I could find. I used both sides of a piece of paper from the Green Tea double sided paper set. I chose the Hostess Set, "Serene Spring" to use as my main image. To color it in, I used a combination of pencils and chalks with my blender pens
Now, granted neither of the cards are especially complicated; but there's marathon on TV today. This time it's "The West Wing." All episodes I'd never seen before, so the fact that I got more than one card done today is almost miraculous!
Have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday!
