Purple pumpkin sketch with a touch of Ombre

Here is the sketch for Purple pumpkin this month and below is my take on it.The American crafts paper with houses all over it was bright so I've used a Ruby Rockit circle then cardstock as my mats. The layout features 2 palaces we saw whilst on the hop-on hop off bus around London. The only Purple Pumpkin thing I had was the twine.I've looped it around trying to create a vine with flowers.This was extremely difficult as it had been through the Xyron to make it sticky. I've also used 2 Websters buttons and some lace dyed in different shades using walnut ink.The ombre effect is for Counterfeit Kits.It is not another challenge but a technique we're asked to try out.
