Mercy Pumpkin Sketch

I'm continuing on with my "trying to get my stamping mojo back" with another sketch challenge. This time I'm using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC68, and, boy, do I *love* her sketches. The boy thought this looked very "halloweeny" but...esh...its a puppy in a pumpkin. How cute is that??? And besides, it (along w/ my MFT bunny butts) have been sitting sadly, uninked for months.

You may not be able to really tell, but the scalloped circle is die cut from a piece of dark brown felt. I found this "stiff felt" from Michaels for $.99 each. It cuts pretty well, but it's probably not as thick as 100% wool, but at $.99 where can one go wrong with that. I sacrificed a bit of sparkly stardream bronze paper and ran it through one of my c-bug embossing plates for the background. Then I mounted both panels for a little more dimension.

The Dets:
Stamps: Verve Hello Pumpkin, So Happy
Paper: MB licorice notecard, SU!, BG indian summer, Stardream bronze, brown felt
Ink: Brilliance pearlescent chocolate, Memento black, copics
Accessories: kaiser pearls, cuttlebug d'vine swirls embossing plate, spellbinder tag & scallop/standard circles, M's satin ribbon


  1. Pretty! It looks very Autumn-ish. And the sacrificing of the bronze stardream paper was well worth it cuz it totally complements the card.
