More pumpkin love!  *chinkle*  Stamped this up the other day, taking a chance the solid image would look well over the Flowers & Vines Background and absolutely loved the effect!  Solid images are just so fun to shade like this–so much fun that I just keep playing with the technique and trying different hues to see what I'm gonna get!  I LIKEY!!!

I don't think it would have worked as well if the background had been stamped in a darker color or the paper I stamped on had been much darker, tho.  This seemed to provide just enough definition and contrast to pull it all off.

I've used that pretty background stamp for *so* many different designs and it can look so different each time, depending on the approach you take with it–I swear, it's one of the most versatile stamps in my collection!

Hope your Monday has been more maaaahvelous than manic! *wink*
