Happy Harvest ...a watercolor pumpkin.

So I got brave...and HAND drew this pumpkin!
I have been wanting to do that and thought OK with the wide tip Water Brush, then added my darker ink with the detailer brush. 

I have always wanted to watercolor but was intimidated. But Distress Inks make it so easy!  Hoping Jillian does a video tutorial soon...once her college classes get settled in!
She has been taking a Color Theory class and watercoloring with gouache paints. I tried it and loved it too,   Which I think gave me confidence to try my pumpkin with the Distress inks!
Pretty proud of how it turned out! Then I just added my die cuts and TADA!
Notice those "branches" those are the Towering Tree branches!
(Notice the MUCH BETTER photo quality of this card...Jillian's new camera for her Digital Photography class came in handy!)
