Trick or Treat - New Halloween Stamps!

Today is the day! The Halloween sets are available! There are four new sets:

* Trick or Treating 
* Best Witches
* Happy Haunting
* Look Whoooo's Watching

My design is from Look Whoooo's Watching. I just love those little pumpkins! 

 I started with the background - Sheena and Shimmer!  The emboss folder is Sheena Douglass Embossing Folder 5" x 7" - Silhouette Lane on Shimmering Cardstock black pearl.  I really dig using emboss folders with the Shimmer Cardstock - the dimension really pops.

The fence and cute, cute pumpkins image is stamped onto  Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils. Of course, I started with the pumpkins. :) Using the darkest shade 024 and working outside in, I colored in the shape of the parts of each pumpkin.

Next I added the middle shade 022 and filled in more of the shapes.

I filled in the rest with the lightest shade 021 - not blending yet, just filling the rest of the image.

After I finished filling in color, I came back in with the lightest 021 and also white 001 to blend, in small, gentle, smooth circles.

045, 048 were perfect for the pumpkin stems. 

I gave the fence a touch of shading 115.

I cut out the fence and popped it up with circles.
