 Yes.... it's finally time! I can start posting Halloween cards. My FAVORITE! This release has some awesome fall and Halloween designs to ink up! I used the Pumpkin Word stamp to create the background. After repeating the Pumpkin word, I sponged some black ink along the edges of the panel. I added the word BOO using the Typewriter Alphabet Die.

 Loved Gail's darling little Pumpkin Trio image... I airbrushed a little W5 around the pumpkins while the image remained in the die. I also added the piercing around the inner edges, using the inside of the die to keep me straight.

 I finished coloring the pumpkins using the above Copics.

On the inside I added the Spider and Web Dies, cut out of black and then colored with a Wink of Stella Brush Pen for some spooky sparkle! The card is an A2 size.
