Mr. Pumpkin Head!

Mr. Pumpkin Head came about after Lisa's, Bloggers Challenge, "sketch"  theme for this week!   I really enjoy the challenge of sketch!  Simon Says Stamp and Show is for Men Only and this corny dude makes the cut!
I knew I wanted to use my new Halloween Treats stamps from Artistic Outpost, so I started with what I decided would be the focal point!  He was stamped with Black Archival ink on yellow cardstock, heat set and then I used Stampin Up's Pumpkin Pie Marker to color in some of the areas! A rick rac ribbon trim was die cut and then the bats from Haunted Halloween were stamped.  All background panels were embossed and highlighted using a technique from the Technique Junkies.  I stamped the spider and sentiment prior to embossing!   For my flourish, I decided to go with a feather in his hat and cut some black open weave ribbon trim in strips.  The feather was gifted to me by my rotten bird, Fred!  You know Fred turned 24 in August.  He may actually be the oldest living Patagonia!

Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Oh Terry - I just love him! He is the best pumpkin retro image...not to scary and not too cute (does that make sense??)! Happy October m'dear - yesterday I swear it was going to snow (low of 35 here)...not ready for it...but I will take that over the heat any day! :)

A great card Terry, fabulous images and I love the autumnal orange and yellow together.
We are having a heat wave at the moment - our seasons are really topsy turvy.
