31 Days of Halloween Day 11 - Pumpkin Scarecrow

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

This is Laurie, and it's Day 11 of the 31 Days of Halloween.  It's been such fun for all of us on the Design Team and I hope it's been a lot of fun for you as well and that you have been entering your creations here on the Portal.

I decided to move away from the more macabre side of Halloween and do something a bit more mainstream.  This is an ATC but could easily be made into a card.

I used the Pumpkin Scarecrow stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  I stamped this guy with black into onto white card stock.  I colored him with Copic markers and used a white gel pen to highlight his teeth and a gold marker to highlight the buttons and stars on his jacket.  My background is a piece of scripted Halloween paper that I cut to ATC size and edged with black ink.  I used the 3 Mini Birds stamp from Lost Coast Designs with black ink and added the birds around the edges.  I attached a black cobweb sticker to the upper right corner and stamped the numbers 31 on the left corner.  Finishing touch is to tuck a little Halloween message into my scarecrow's right hand.

The complete list of participants in the hop is shown on the sidebar.
