{Spotlight Project} Becca Visits with the Great Pumpkin

Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Ever since I had my first Pumpkin Latte at Caribou last week I've been dancing in anticipation for Fall. And that's why the card I'm showcasing today is totally in line with the Harvest season.

I've been having so much fun playing around with the new Stamp Club set, Artsy Tribal Doodles. It's been so interesting to see what my fellow STAMPlorations designers have dreamed up! This set seems to have some endless possibilities.

As I was squinting at the shapes in the set, I went a little crosseyed and BOOM! out popped a pumpkin face. 

I stamped some triangles for the eyes and nose and then used one of the squiggle shapes to make some teeth. I filled in spaces using a Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen in black. 

Next, I used the Crazy Double Running Stitches Nestable CUTplorations dies and accentuated the "stitchwork" with a white gel pen. 

To amp up the background, I adhered some polka dotted vellum using a glue stick. 

Handy tip: Glue sticks dry clear, so they are a great way to use vellum without ruining the opacity. 

Lastly, I embossed a SpooooooooKY sentiment using the Sketchy Alphabet set

I put all the elements together and added some fun little Halloweeny paper pieces.
