Jack O Lanterns and Trees

Hello! The Stampendous Design Team is gearing up for a fun blog hop with Tombow.  Today, I am going show a project with the Zero Drawing Technique to you.

You may have seen me use this technique a couple of weeks ago, with the same beautiful Leafless Tree from Dreamweaver, and other pumpkins. But this time, I decided to go a bit spookier and use these Jack O Lanterns.

This is a very simple technique with awesome results, and you can learn how to do it by watching this video HERE. This is perfect if you need a card in a pinch,and just don't feel like coloring. You'll definitely want to pick up the MONO Zero Round Eraser if you decide to try this technique. The eraser is so small and can get into such teeny crevices of your stencils. Plus, you can easily draw with it. It's a great eraser!

I used Spoonful of Midnight Embossing Powder and Elements around the edge of my card base. I also added a bit of opaque black embossing powder in addition to what's in the Spoonful because I wanted to make sure that the edge had decent coverage. Spoonful of midnight has such beautiful glitter in it!

The Stampendous Blog will be posting a full link list tomorrow, so out all of the folks listed below will be showing their projects today. So please be sure to check in with them on 9/16/15. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Well now theres the real Alison that I have seen before. So spooky and delightful. I love how the pencil just gives that smokey, foggy type look to the background.
There is something so ethereal and spooky about this technique!!! I am so in love with it and am going to be giving it a try as soon as I get a pencil that has lead in it!! LOL I am thinking that shaving colored pencils and doing this might look equally awesome!!! I have those so I may just have to try it!!! YEP! Off to my craft room to give it a go!! Thanks for the inspiration!
