Happy Halloween Pumpkins {Purple Onion Designs}

Today's Halloween card features stamps from Purple Onion Designs.

I stamped Happy Pumpkins with Versafine ink onto Ranger Watercolor paper and them heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I watercolored the image and background with Zig Clean Color Watercolor brushes, added highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen and then cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities. The sentiment from the Sweet Occasions Sentiment set was stamped onto a Limeade Ice cardstock piece, then the image panel was also matted onto Limeade Ice cardstock.  I wrapped the panel with twine and anchored with a couple of buttons. The image panel was then attached with craft foam to the patterned paper background. The card is small, a 4 1/4 square.
