MR. PUMPKINHEAD..



Hello Everyone.....

Brrr...so much for lovely spring weather, we have another polar blast coming through...bit chilly!!.

But made a card last night that cheered me up, found this awesome Scarecrow image, a freebie for Saturday and Sunday only from Rick.St.Dennis  and he called it "simple Scarecrow"..fabulous drawing.



There he is, isn't he wonderful...

Coloured with pencils and then inked all around him with sponges in black, grey and blue inks.



A bit closer of image.....the netting over the whole card is a hair net...and the cobwebs, barely noticable, is hot glue cobwebs, which I normally do by mistake, but this time it was intentional.

The sentiment was stickers on a ripped piece of kraft scrap and made into a banner...



And a side view.....quite a big card...A4..lots of die cut leaves all inked and screwed up, then opened again, gave them all a crumpled look....pumpkins, inked and cut out....and some spiders.

The papers are Magnolia 'Turning Leaves collection - Vintage Corn"...

Going to enter this card in a challenge at HOOKED ON CRAFT  [Halloween]

Okay, I'm done.. and I have eaten too much chocolate, now have indigestion..so off the drink a gallon of water, and play it from there..

Thanks for stopping by, and all your wonderful comments....really apppreciate them.

Off to leave some love in blogland...see you there...and will see you tomorrow too..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Can completely see why this cheered you up - it's an absolutely brilliant card! Delicious colouring on your main image - that purple is so perfect to set off the orange. And your collection of pumpkins and fallen leaves is fab... really wonderful work, Chrissy!
