You are a pumpkin



Finally got to making my first Hallowe’en card of the season, this one features a die cut, Layered Jack-o-Lantern, and stamp, from the Pumpkinhead set, both by Tim Holtz.


I followed Linda’s sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for my card.  I used my two pumpkins for the circle elements and my chippies and Nuvo drops for the horizontal element.  I really needed a third BOO! chippie to finish off my line but only had one in each size so I’m going with one boo per pumpkin and that’s why there’s only two.

I made both the pumpkins from watercolour paper.  The die cut I coloured after cutting each of the pieces and then layered them up with foam tape to add dimension.  The stamped image was double stamped, in black ink and then embossing so I could add clear embossing powder and make the lines really pop.  I coloured it with my Distress Markers, which I also used to colour the chippies before I topped them with clear embossing powder too.

For a bit more interest to the background I spritzed the black cardstock with Perfect Pearls Mist so it’s lovely and shiny.  I stuck to a very traditional Hallowe’en palette for this card and as it is rather dark I think it will work well for one of the two male cards I need this Hallowe’en.  With its masculine feel I am entering it in the current Cardz 4 Guys challenge.

As I also have a couple of pumpkins on my card I am also entering it at City Crafter for their current challenge.
