Let's go camping Challenge
I chose to do a Halloween wall hanging for this challenge. I used Who's out there Ali from Simply Betty stamps. I also played with the GIMP program. I found a picture of a pumpkin patch in daylight. I added Ali then decided I wanted a more spooky feel so I added fog in the foreground and a moon and darkness to the rest. I also added a little light to her flashlight. Next I printed out the picture and colored Ali with Copic's. The little kitten is a dollar stamp that I got from I think is was JoAnn's. Colored the kitty and pumpkin with copic's also. Next I matted and cut out what was going to be a hanger handle (the black at the top). Oops though I made it to narrow at the bottom edges and while trying to reinforce laid it on a piece of orange cardstock. It struck me as a Vampireish looking head and that's where the rest came in. I added the sentiment ( Protect your Pumpkins that was colored with copics and tucked some eyeballs under the edge.
