Victorine Originals Challenge ~ Mood Board #14

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with a new mood board (you can see it at the bottom of this post). Here is what I created for inspiration!
I started by die cutting a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper with a GMD stitched rectangle die.  I then inked it up with Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint, and Fossilized Amber.  Once those were blended well, I sprayed water on the paper to create the "oxide" look.  I went around the outside of the paper with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink.  I then stamped the VO Pumpkins on a Vine stamp in the corner.  The VO Heaven on Earth sentiment was stamped on a separate banner piece.  Both were stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I chose to highlight the pumpkins with a white chalk marker.  I also added GMD Paradise enamel dots and Nuvo Crystal Drops in white (they took on the yellow color of the Distress Oxide ink underneath).

This is the wonderful mood board for the current challenge:
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s.  We can't wait to see your take on the current Mood Board. With fall leaves, pumpkins, thanks and fall colors for inspiration, the possibilities are endless. Remember your project doesn't have to be Give Thanks only. You have three options Photo Inspiration, Color Palette, and/or Theme.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
