Welcome back, friends!  I’m sharing another Halloween card which I made with Brutus Monroe’s Pumpkin Faces and a couple images from Scare Crows!  The two sets pair beautifully and I had so much fun creating this!  I began by stamping the top pumpkin first, then masked in order to stamp the next one, and so on.  Before I stamped the bottom pumpkin, I added the fence from Scare Crows, then masked that so I could pop the big ol’ punkin behind it!

My next step was to heat-emboss the faces onto each pumpkin before coloring them with Copics.  I used the masks again to cover each one so that I could add the pale blue background with a soft makeup brush.  I also heat embossed in black the sentiment from Scare Crows directly to my panel.

I stamped the cute little crow from Scare Crows onto the fence, then drew in some grass and flowers for a little extra interest.  When my panel was completely colored, I  spattered on some orange and black ink; the black actually appears purple so that influenced my choice of patterned paper!  I trimmed down my panel with a Stitched Rectangle die then tilted it slightly sideways onto the paper.  A white card base makes the colors pop!  If you’re interested in a versatile set of pumpkins for  your fall and Halloween cards, consider adding Pumpkin Faces to your stash!
