Well there are more Halloween themed challenges this week and one of them is a shaped card, so that's how my pumpkin started. Then the others all dealt with Halloween colors...
I hand drew the pumpkin shape and cut it out. Used a Papermate Eraser Mate pen to draw my separation lines and embossed with black embossing powder. Direct to paper with Spiced Marmalade, then edged with Aged Mahogany.
Cut out my black shapes for eyes, nose & mouth. Stamped the spider flourish (Inkadinkado) coming out of it's mouth - UGH...
Die cut Spellbinders the floral flourish from Grungepaper and the Fancy Tags from white cardstock. The leaf flourish I coated with Distress Picket Fence, when dry, direct to paper with Distress stamp pad Shabby Shutters, Pine Needles & Walnut Stain. The tag was sponged with Dried Marigold and then Dusty Concord. Stamped the word with Versafine Black Onyx. Looped the tag onto the vine and adhered both.
With the leaf flourish and tag the card ends up being 5"w x 7"h
I'm using one of the Halloween stamps from Quietfire Design.- so cute.
