SIP117 Watercolored Jack

Hi peeps!  Tuesday brings us another Stamp Ink Paper challenge, and we've got a watercolor one for you today!

No automatic alt text available.

My friend Debbie bought this cute little Jack-o-Lantern image for me last summer and I just had to ink him up with some Stazon ink and color him in with some ink and reinkers:

I used the sketch from Fab Friday and the colors from Just Us Girls:

I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler to color him in, then added a sentiment from Newton's Nook.  The DSP is Painted Autumn, cardstock is Thick Very Vanilla!  Since my weeks have been so busy, it seems CAS is the only thing I can do these days!  Hopefully I'll get to play with some of my new goodies soon!

I hope you'll stop by the Stamp Ink Paper blog and see what the other designers watercolored...then be sure to share your creation with us too!

We went to Longwood Garden's Fireworks and Fountains show Saturday night; the musical theme was Over the Rainbow.  I was blown away by ALL of it!  You can see a video of the fountains here (scroll down to see the video portion) but to see a half hour of amazing fireworks in addition to the fountains was almost too much...we didn't know where to look first!  We had to go early and set up chairs on the lawn, but then we got to stroll the gardens and go to Cassidy's favorite part, the children's gardens!!!

There are little water jets that are timed just right to spit out water up and down this little incline...the kids love to "chase" them!

And little hidey-holes:

and lots of funny sculptures spitting water!!!

Finally, it was time for the fireworks and fountains!  I didn't take any photos, but Dana took a's really hard to capture how amazing they were!  And amazingly, with about 2000 people, we got out and on our shuttle buses very quickly!  They really know how to move us!!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
