An alcohol pumpkin :)

I love to play.

Play with my inks and tools and stamps.

Here is a good example of some fun I had the other day with alcohol inks.  I made an alcoholed pumpkin. :)  So fun.  I just punched a circle from glossy white paper.  Cut the top and bottom to round it out like a pumpkin.  I then put on lots of Mountain Rose, Butterscotch and Copper Alcohol Inks.  I did many layers – letting them dry between – to make the color dark and intense.  Yum.  The background of the card is stamped with my favorite new Cling stamp from Hero Arts.  I then distressed the heck out of my notecard with the Tim Holtz Edge Distresser.  (And, when Colin asked what it was, and then found out it was from Tim, he walked off with it – ha.)  And that grass patch was covered with Rock Candy Stickles.  My new favorite.  It is non-glitter glitter – clear pieces that just catch the light.  And it dries clear.  Love it.  And the speaking/caption/balloon thingie is a punch – a must-have.  So, here it is…
