My second Mo Manning Halloween Card

Well this is the second image of Mo Manning's that Im using for the little grandchildren in our family, I hope you wont be to surprised at my posting this as Ive still got at least three more Halloween cards to make but I will try to find something else to post next time as I dont want to bore you to much with these.

This image is so cute with a little head popping up in the centre of all those pumpkins, Ive coloured the image with my copic pens then used the Pumpkin Nestabilitie die to cut it out, because I used the largest die, I had to draw around the outside of the same one to create a mount for it, Ive used some orange card for this then mounted them together with some foam tape. The greeting is again one Ive printed from my computer and mounted this in the same way as the image.

The base card is my usual 8"x 8" white card, and for the first layer Ive used some red card, with yet again the Halloween designs from Donna's Extreme Designs Cd Vol.III, Ive found them extremely useful and so many different designs. This one is a orange pattern with all sorts of things on, pumpkins, cats, teddies and even some little mice. The second layer is a orange and beige patchwork pattern that Ive again used my pumpkin border punch down either side. It was then stuck down the middle of my base card, and on top of this I have layered up a third paper onto red card again and with some black rik rak brad stuck around it, positioned this in the centre of the last layer. Ive then stuck my mounted image in the centre and my greeting below. The final finishes are the star gems, which have to stuck at different places down either side of the base layer, and Ive even used my Sakura stardust pen on the eyes, noses and mouths of some of the little things on the paper.
