October Purple Pumpkin sketch

I loved this month's sketch below and had an idea of what I wanted to do that was a little different to make the vertical "stripes"First I masked a section of my off white card and then using Wild Honey distress ink I coloured the rest of the card with the colour deeper at the masked edge and fading out to the edge. I still need more practice with distress inks but I do love the effect. After it had dried I removed the masking tape and chose some bright cheery papers from Echo Park's country drive. I cut the photo's out (again I love the way this looks with some photos) and used the lovely purple pumkin embellishments to make a little cluster with my title "Little Man" which is Alex's nickname. I added a couple more stickers, some stars above the photos and a little journalling about Alex accessorising his Halloween mummy outfit with Kari's Hannah Montana hat lol
