Halloween Fun!

I am really liking this "Autumn Harvest" set by Stampin' Up! It's great for those short "holidays", Halloween and Thanksgiving. And a little bit of fall in there too!!

I started this card last night but got too tired to finish it. I knew in my mind what I wanted to see on the card stock but my eyes weren't letting me work on it. SO I go upstairs and get ready for bed and then I'm wide awake! Go figure!! LOL

I had a busy day and I didn't find time to finish the card until tonight.

Here's how I did it. I colored the pumpkins and leaves in using the blender pen. Now you all know when I use the blender pen I ALWAYS stamp my images using black Staz-on. It does exactly what it says, it stays on!!! The large pumpkin in the back was stamped directly onto the watercolor paper. The other pumpkins and leaves were stamped and colored on watercolor paper but they were cut out and applied to the other piece of watercolor. I colored around the pumpkins using my blender pen and River Rock inker. I added a little bit of Always Artichoke closer to the pumpkins. The words were done on the computer since the "Happy Halloween" words are in a set on my wish list. Lot of good it's doing me there!!! LOL But I had this fun spider font and just put card stock in my computer, printed the words and punched it out.

I used the new Halloween decorative papers from Stampin' Up! They are SO adorable!

It was a very fun card to make. Not a quick 20 minute card but that's fine, it was fun.

Thank you for stopping by!
