Pumpkin for my sister...

Here's the "just because" gift for my sister that I gave a sneak peek of yesterday....


I took a small pumpkin (weighing about 3 lbs) and painted it with white paint...let dry for 30 minutes or so, then added second coat...let dry for 30 minutes or so...then added the wood-grain (which kinda resembles Zebra-print) with black paint...let dry and then sprayed with clear enamel.  I added the Dimensional Element and Red Sparkles and adhered with Liquid Glass.

I gave it to her at lunch and she LOVED IT!!!  She was sad to find out that the pumpkin was real and wouldn't last but a few months...:0(
