Day 21: Hey Pumpkin!

Yup...I'm late. Stupid late. Like, it's almost tomorrow! But,, these past 2 weeks have been insanely busy. Pampered Chef meetings, Pampered Chef Shows (need anything??? ;) ), school meetings, regular errands....so my apologies for posting so...late.....

I used the Jack O Lantern stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. First, I applied alcohol inks to one side of the stencil, much like I did with the spider web stencil on my Hedwig card. But this time I used textured cardstock and 2 colors of ink, so the look is totally different. Because of this, I felt my Jacks didn't stand  out enough, so I cleaned off my stencil and inked them.

So I used the most stunning gold ink that I've ever seen. Delicata Golden Glitz from Imagine Crafts. Love the shimmer, and in person it's even more beautiful. I outlined everything with a marker, and then added my sentiment from Cosmo Cricket. Ta-da! Better late than never, right? Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listen in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
