Midway Challenge #21 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun!!.

Hey everyone and a very Happy Saturday to you!!! I worked from home yesterday and I also worked on the titles for next years Open-Minded Challenges. I got them all done.. and that was my goal LOL So, I'm happy about that! But today I need to concentrate on coloring some images!!  I hope you all have a great weekend!! I'm hoping to craft the weekend away!!

Today we are at the midway point for our Challenge #21 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. Our challenge this Pumpkins / Jack O Lanterns. We have had some amazing creations so far!! I hope you all will join in!! You have until Friday at Midnight to get in on this one! Next Saturday a new challenge will begin!

Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are:

 Here is what I have come up with for this challenge:

Love these images!!  These are two images from Oak Pond Creations; Pumpkins and Pumpkin Kitty. I colored both of these images with my Copic markers. I decoupaged the pumpkins. I added the two different ribbons and the black and white twine. I added the different colored buttons to match the colors of the card and added the twine to those. The Trick or Treat is a stamp.. it is a new stamp set from My Craft Spot. I also added the orange gems at the bottom.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Pumpkins: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR09
  • Pumpkin Leaves: YG05, YG09, YG17
  • Stem: E35, E37
  • Cat: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
  • Bat: C00, C5, C9
