Paper Pumpkin Monday: Pocketful of Cheer and Gold Wink of Stella

These are the last few days of Sale-a-bration 2016! 



I am so in love with this month's kit! It has taken over my crafting table AND my crafting brain! This card is inspired by the color scheme of the kit and uses 2 of the darling stamps. I love the font! And the little flowers draw the eye to the watercoloring, I think.

To get this effect, I used a clear acrylic block as a palette. I added Bermuda Bay ink, Pool Party ink, and Gold Wink of Stella. A couple spritzes of water made them all flow together, and I quickly used the block as a stamp on my Thick Whisper White cardstock. I re-stamped a few times till all the ink was (mostly) off the block.

In real life, there is a sheen of gold over the whole piece, but it's really hard to capture the subtle effect in a photo! Add a little Wink of Stella to your next project and watch it shine!
