Hallowe'en Pumpkins

Today's post is another of my Hallowe'en cards.  I used an Inkadinkado stamp #99414 - sorry, I don't know the name of it & the sentment is from Stampendous & is called... get ready... Happy Hallowe'en & is # 147.  I saw a similar card a long time ago & thought I'd give it a go if I ever got the stamp, which of course I did.  This worked up very quickly with all the shadows already in place so I coloured it with Copics & then rubbed in Distress Ink shades of black soot, antique linen, dried marigold & blended sage around the outside.  The rubbed in colour is much darker than the picture shows so it gives it that spooky, dark night look.
Challenges I've entered it in:
StampitCrazy - Hallowe'en Sketch Pumpkin - ends Oct 16   Ta...da.... I won!
Aly's Sunday Sketch Challenge ASC27 Hallowe'en.  ends Oct 23
Let's Ink it Up - Use Hallowe'en Colors - ends Oct 22  Ta..da...  I made Top 3!
