Hello Pumpkin


Hello and happy Wednesday.. my card for today is also one i will sent to Sweden. I wanted to use on my second Halloween card some other stamps than the fence and the cute pumpkins we DT recieved. So i thought.. hmmm the cat and the haybale would make a nice szene as well! The card was farily fast... since i did not use many layers and had to sew. i just used one sheet of patterend paper so i used some of Debbies Die Cuts fabulous swirls to give the card the needed embellishments and visual interest. It does not show really well but i airbrushed the background with Copics in grey and the edges are airbrushed with Pumpkin yellow. Tildas orange "dress" is the same colors as i used for the pumpkin - i used lots of the colorless blender pen to lift the color out and make it look a little different than the orange used on the pumpkin.

EDIT: I would like to show you a link to a Halloween card i published here in June.. if you are on a stamping budget and can not afford all the new stamps.. take a look at this card: Halloween - you can make stamps work for 2 occasions.
Stamps: Magnolia (Tilda 2008 Fall collection) Heybale (Valentines 2008 collection) Cat (not sure should be 2007), Sentiment: Computer generated

Hi,
I love this card! and I liked the other one too! Maybe her whiskers needed to be more prominent to make her look more like a cat And mayde you could have drawn in a tail? But having said that I loved it and the spider web was a lovely added touch.
