*painted pumpkin* - SNEAK PEEK!!!

Fall is here, and Beth couldn't have picked a better time to release her amazing new fall and winter sets! For today's sneak peek, I decided to feature this charming pumpkin image. I thought I would try something new, so I dug out my box of craft paints and painted the background. I love that it's not perfect. It's dabbed and swiped and streaked, and that just adds to it's charmingly vintage feel, as does the crocheted lace and old brown button. I discovered that markers do not work well over paint, so I stamped another stem and leaf onto cardstock, colored them in, and then pop dotted them on top. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another vintage sneak peek!
