Smile

Thought I'd have some fun as I don't go in for the ghoulish or horror side of Halloween.  I do smile seeing the little ones in their costumes & that was my inspiration. All stamps are by Stampendous!: Cling Mumpkin, Elegant Borders & Flower Chat. My colors are from 4enScrap & I used Spellbinders Labels 10.  Emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques (works for those of us with less than great coloring skills!) & I used Distress ripe persimmon & PTI Summer Sunrise along with a bit of Distress frayed burlap on the edge. The card front is sponged with Memento Grape Jelly before the border is stamped in the same ink.  I used 2 sizes of Hero Arts green gems for the eyes & stamped smile in Distress gathered twigs on kraft, cut it out & attached it just at one end.  The piece is mounted with foam tape to the card front.

  2. When I was reading your post I thought it was a typo until I saw your card!!! Your mumpkin makes me smile big time Greta!!! And I agree with you about emboss resist- it's a technique I love as I'm not so confident in my coloring:)

  3. Hello Greta
    I love it, not only the mummy image; which is so cute and not frightening at all, but the shape of the card, it certainly adds appeal, the green eyes are a crack up!

  14. Mumpkin! That is the sweetest word :) And I too am much more of a fan of the 'kids having fun' than of the 'augh, what creepy thing is THAT' side of Halloween :) I love the embossing & the super fun shape :)
