Vintage Jack O' Lantern - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Anniversary/Wedding Challenge, the challenge this week Halloween.

I haven't created anything in over a week, thanks in part to a virus that has had me down, today is actually the first day I've even felt like doing anything.  For the challenge this week, I created a 3D pumpkin using SVG Cuts Jack 0' Lantern template from the Fright Night SVG Kit.

I resized the pattern 80%, then cut the pieces from Black card stock, Graphic 45 pattern paper and Vellum using the Silhouette.  I just LOVE the way this turned out!

The directions called for the eye and mouth pieces to be cut from Orange tissue paper, while I have a lot of crafty things, Orange Tissue paper is just not one of them.  So I cut those pieces from Vellum and used the eBrush to color them Orange - problem solved!

To add a little spookiness to my pumpkin, I randomly added some stenciling to the pumpkin using STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Markers, along with the Shatter Stencil and eBrush.

To create the handle, I added Scor-Tape to Vintage Black Seam Binding and sandwiched a piece of thin wire between the seam binding and added it to the Jack O' Lantern.

Card Stock - Black
Ink - Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Other - SVG Cuts Fright Night Kit, Silhouette Cameo, Vellum, Graphic 45 Paper, Seam Binding, Wire, Scor-Tape, STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Markers, eBrush, Shatter Stencil, Ink Blending Tool
