It's Party Time At The Pumpkin Patch...

Hi folks, today I'm sharing a party invitation I made for the Facebook Live launch of  the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Halloween collection of stamps and stencils using the Monsters Reunion stamp set and some favourite Sizzix Thinlits.

If you missed it, you can check out all the amazing products and fabulous inspiration HERE.

Who wouldn't want to be invited to a fun party at the Pumpkin Patch

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to create 2 panels, one slightly smaller than the other and coloured using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink, smooshing the ink on to my glass media mat, spritzing with water and picking up the colour, you all know the drill by now.
I masked off the sentiment and inked the pumpkin image from Monsters Reunion with Peeled Paint Distress Archival and stamped repeatedly on the front panel.
I inked the image again with Ground Espresso Distress Archival and stamped on to the insert for placement and stamped again on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card, ready to fussy cut.
I used circle punches dies to create the cut-out section on the front panel and the hole on the insert and inked around the edges of the panels with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.
I die-cut the scarecrow, grass and crows from card coloured with Ground Espresso Distress Ink and Idea-ology Classic Kraftstock using Sizzix Scarecrow Thinlits. I coloured a strip of Mummy Cloth with Spiced Marmalade Distress Spray Stain and fixed the die-cuts in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I fixed Tim Holtz/Sizzix Adhesive Sheet to scraps of Idea-ology Classic KraftStock and die cut the wording using Sizzix Alphanumeric Label Letters and CutOut Script Thinlits. I coloured the pumpkins using Distress Markers and a Distress Detailer Brush.
I created faux stitching around the edges of the panels using Tim Holtz Design Ruler, Craft Pick and a black fine liner pen. I matted the front panel on to Idea-ology Black Classic KraftStock using thin strips of Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create a pocket for the insert and tied Mummy Cloth to the insert.
I stamped the sentiment from Monsters Reunion on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card using Black Soot Distress Archival and fussy cut. To finish I added highlights to the pumpkin eyes using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.

I'll be back tomorrow to share a trio of cuties, until then, have fun with whatever you are creating.
