We have a new sponsor, STAMPlorations, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Pin Cushion!  A randomly selected participant in the Pin Cushion challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to use at  STAMPlorations, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

This is my take on the Pin Cushion challenge.

Many Thanks1

My inspiration are the pumpkins. I decided to get creative with watercolouring for the background. The Pumpkins are from a stamp set from Winnie & Walter called Moonlight. I white heat embossed the pumpkins on cardstock and coloured using distress inks. Then hand cut them out. 

For the background I have watercoloured using distress inks and gesso. I also used the tiny pumpkins from the Moonlight stamp set to stamp on the background to create some depth. The sentiment is from Happy Christmas stamp set also from Winnie & Walter. Here is a closeup!

Many Thanks closeup

Hope you liked my interpretation of the Pin Cushion Challenge.
