As promised yesterday, here's a great alternative project using pieces from the October Paper Pumpkin kit. I added a strip of gold glimmer paper, and instead of making this a shaker card, I sponged color on to the leaves, stamped them with the amazingly cool crackle image included in the set with this kit and then placed them into their coordinating holes with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used an aqua painter with Delightful Dijon ink to wash the background piece (tip: brush the aqua painter in the same direction as the embossed lines on this paper...learned this the hard way!), and then glued some of the sequins on for a little extra bling.
