Happy Pumpkin Day


Today I did a card for McMahon Five Design using one of the cutest Halloween digital images. I had so much fun coloring the images and just went wild with the glitter too.  And added some WOW! Embossing powder to the sentiment.  Below the photo are all the details about how I created my card.   The image below discusses the image I used plus you get a total of 16 files in this grouping of digital images.  Now that is a great deal!!!

Check out those crazy eyes!

The two pumpkins were colored using Prisma colored pencils using Neenah Paper. The Gourd in the center was paper pieced using a texture paper than colored lightly with Prisma color pencils. All the glitter is Stickles Glitter Glue.  The card base was made from Neenah Paper.  And the web frame was cut using my Cricut Expression.  I also sprayed the web frame with Silver Glitter Dust by Therm-O- Web. The spider was also cut using my Cricut Expression and then added some glitter for his nose and feet.  And for his eyes I used Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is part of the 16 files you will get with this digital package.  Below is a close up of the sentiment.  I printed the sentiment on cardstock using my printer and while the ink was still wet I covered it with WOW! Silver Embossing powder.  And then used a heat gun to melt it.  The background for the sentiment is just a torn piece of cardstock and the edges were embossed to match the sentiment.
