Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I have a Halloween card to share with you all today.
One of the new dies that were recently released by Elizabeth Craft Designs by designer Susan Tierney-Cockburn was this beautiful large French Pumpkin. Of course it was designed to be filled with any of her gorgeous flowers. Other than for eating, for me when I think of pumpkins, the first thing I think about is Halloween and when I saw this die I envisaged ghosts flying in and around the pumpkin .... so of course as you can see I decided to take my idea and bring it to life by creating it into a card.
To create my night sky I die cut the largest rectangle from the Dashing Rectangles die set and then blended Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot Distress Oxides over the sky and then splattered white paint over the background to create a starry sky.
To ground the pumpkin I die cut the snow/ground border from the Adventure Edges die set from black cardstock.
I die cut the pumpkin and leaves from white cardstock and then colored using orange and yellow distress oxide inks and also yellow and orange copics. I decided I needed a face on my pumpkin ... so for the mouth I used a die from the Pumpkins die set and hand cut the triangles for the eyes and nose ... I did try using the smaller eyes/nose from the same set but it looked odd on such a large pumpkin.
I die cut both ghosts from the Ghosts die set and added them to my scene.
For the inside of my card I used the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Words 3 - Happy Holidays die set and added the bats and spider from the Halloween Scenery die set.
