Damask Pumpkin: Day 18 of 31 Days of Halloween

Ok friends, today I am cheating. I am double posting with Dreamweaver Stencils today, and I am using the same project for both. I'm sorry! I have been busy with Pampered Chef Shows...fundraisers to be exact...and making costumes for my kids. So today, I decided to not make myself absolutely crazy, and just use the same card twice.

I used the beautiful Damask stencil, inked with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I had a really cool pumpkin stamp, from Inkadinkado, which also has a damask print on it, which is what inspired the card for today.

The pumpkin was watercolored, and the 2 elements were layered atop a striped piece of paper. Not overly crazy, this project, because I didn't want the patterns to be too overpowered by anything else. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!

I am so excited about all the "new colors" pumpkins are being grown in these days. Have not seen seen one in damask.
Although I have seen one grown in a Frankenstein mask. (groan)
Yes, as the days near the BIG date, we all are getting busier and more tired.
Good to hear PC is staying busy.

Beautiful and classy card.

For Shame, burn her at the old mill tree...Kidding!! So know the crazy feeling. Had 4 minutes til deadline of WB post this morning. Talk about cutting it close! You are just super smart!! That Seedless Preserves ink is sooo pretty and love it w/ that stencil. Like the contrast with the background paper. Nice!
