Mini pumpkin head and sketch

I had a bit of a busy week last week with requests for cards so I've been busy crafting over the weekend.

My boss saw my Mini MonstaBoyz from Make It Crafty I'd got through the post and asked if I could do a pumpkin head for her son Harry.

I wanted him to pop from the card and also do something simple because Harry is only four so would probably pull off embellishments if I used them.  So after thinking about it for a while I decided to create a scene.  I stamped the image in the bottom right hand corner of some crafting card and then sketched by hand a spooky house, tree and moon.  The background and his clothed are coloured with copics in various shades of grey.  The pumpkin head and window are coloured with ProMarkers.

 The background of the card is layered black and orange card stock.  On the left I've used some glitter letters from Hobby Craft for the word Halloween.  The fence is cut from white card stock with a die.

The final touch was to draw a bat in black biro over the moon and highlight the windows and pumpkin head with the biro.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges
Paradise of Stamps - Halloween
Without Words - Boo
A Little Bit Crafty - Halloween
Graph It Colouring Challenge - Extra FX
