In the Pumpkin Patch Halloween 3


I got this embossing folder last year and promptly forgot about it.  When I got my bin of halloween stuff out, I found it!  Yay!  I decided to put it to use today.
I embossed ivory cardstock with the folder in the cuttlebug.  Then I inked the pumpkins with Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey Ranger Distress Inks- then added some Shabby Shutters for the stems.  I did the sky/background with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.  I added some copics on one of the eyes.  I then added some Walnut Stain over parts for definition.  The bats are from my beloved MS punch, and I punched a circle for a moon.  Truth be told, I had to cover up a spot where I made a boo-boo earlier!  Yay for creative embellishments that cover mistakes!  I used some BG scraps from an earlier project. Misc cardstock and ribbon.  I spritzed Graphite Glimmer Mist over the whole thing.

I am playing at Haunted Design House for the pumpkin/guord challenge;  and Freshly Made Sketches using Sketch #36 for their current challenge (although I am not positive it meets the Clean Criteria- feel free to remove it if not).

Thanks for stopping by! Back to crafting!

I really like the way the colours have been blended, the orange outside the pumpkin, really nice and hazy.
