Hey there, my pumpkin for today's Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge comes in the form of a jack-o-lantern.  I love Halloween and I really love Whipper Snapper Designs Halloween images!  This little peek-a-boo kitty is stinking adorable!

*Confession time*  I've been a collector of stencils for a while now, but not so much of a user.  I decided today was the day to change that!  I used a checkerboard stencil from My Favorite Things and sponged some Pistachio ink onto it then removed the stencil and sponged more Pistachio ink.  I kind of like it!  I will definitely be playing with more stencils in the future!

The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then the pumpkin was glued down while the leaves and cat were popped up on foam for a little added dimension.  Die cut leaves were colored to tie into the image then shaped with a Susan's Garden tool kit.  The button looks a little dark, but in real life it perfectly matches the purple on the hat.

PUMPKIN:  YR18, YR15, YR12, YR00  HAT:  C6, C4, C2, C0, V17, V15, V12, Y15, Y11, Y00  CAT:  C6, C4, C2, C0, R30, R00, R000  CAT'S COLLAR:  V17, V15, V12  GRASS:  YG95, YG93,  YG91  LEAVES:  YG93, YR15, YR12, Y00

The colors on your card are so vibrant, Tam! The whole card is just so much fun and the stenciling is perfection!! I'm a stencil buyer / virgin user, too, and hope to change that, so thank you for the inspiration I need. Thank you, too, for joining my blog and playing in my NBUS Challenge #5! (So long ago! I’m sorry that my nursing duties have delayed me in coming by to thank you before now.) Enjoy your day! I hope to see you again soon! Hugs, Darnell
