Pumpkin ATC for Day 3 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to Day 3 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today, I bring you an ATC using a cool pumpkin stamp from Inkadinkado.

I colored the image with alcohol markers and used a cool fabric tape on the bottom. Then, I added Queen's Gold Embossing powder from Ranger around the edge. Super simple ATC, but I dig it. I hope you do too.

Please be sure to check out all the rules for 31 Days on Terra's Blog. And check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!


A very striking image, gorgeous Autumn colours.
