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.
