Evening peeps what a glorious day today although a smidge cold, might have to get my coat out soon, usually the hot flushes keep me warm......lol, I have had an inky play today using lots of techniques to create this Autumn/Halloween card, I started with a paper from Bearly designs and added extra distressing to the edges, the pumpkin doiley was sent to me by Diann at Dianns art spot......thank you so much.The pumkin label is a download that I added Picket Fence stain to.....love the effect you get and oh so easy to achieve as well as distressing the edges with Walnut Stain. The other pumpkin I embossed with Ultra thick embossing crystals, I then crumpled the embossed image to get cracks in it and again I used walnut Stain to rub in the cracks for a more aged look. The leaves were created by glimmer misting paper with oranges and greens and then I used one of the freebie stamps that you get on the front of The Craft Stamper magazine to stamp on this, embossing part of the inked image with Copper embossing powder from Wow.The little girl image was stamped onto tissue paper and then using Claudine Helmuths matt multi medium to stick it down, this then becomes see through so you can see part of the background.
