Day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween: Pumpkin and Crows Pendant

Hello! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I certainly am. It's been rather busy here, but certainly in a good way. Today, I am sharing a pendant with you. I used an image from Inkadinkado that is from the same set as the card I shared with you yesterday.

Isn't that a cool stamp? I started off with a piece of wood, that I painted using Crown Jewel's paint by Acent. It's acrylic paint that is metallic. So pretty. After it dried, I stamped the image using Versa Craft ink by Tsukineko. I colored the pumpkin with 2 Copic markers, and then I embossed the heck out of it with Judi Kins Amazing Glaze.

You can see the pretty texture created by the Amazing Glaze here. I punched a couple of holes (rather crookedly, I might add) before embossing using my Crop A Dile.

Here, you get a better idea of it's size since it's in my hand. It's pretty large. About the size of an ATC. You can also see how metallic the Crown Jewels paint is too. I hope you have enjoyed my offering for today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!
