This Pumpkin Head's FLYIN' with Unscripted Sketches #225


Welcome to Sketch-It Saturday with Unscripted Sketches #225. Halloween is just around the bend and I'm in full spooky spirit. For today's project, I used this weeks sketch and combined the October Inspiration from Viva Las VegaStamps! and added some Creative Paperclay®, too!


I made a mold from a stack of jack-o-lantern foil die cut embellishments using Amazing Mold Putty. CLICK HERE to see how I made the mold. I filled the mold with Creative Paperclay® and set it aside to dry. When completely dry, I sprayed with a combination of shimmery mists, and dry brushed with some Ranger Distress Paints... this pumpkin is AGLOW!



The background was a section of painted cardstock using peeled paint and seedless grape distress stain spread on my craft mat, misted with water then paper dragged into it... leftover from another project {since I was able to make several painted papers from my inky mess}. This was a perfect base to start with and I toned the colors down with Old Paper and Vintage Paper Distress Inks. I stamped a muted foggy scene using Cemetery, the spiked fence, a tree background and Halloween Tree Silhouette, and Headless Horseman/Bridge images - all from Viva Las VegaStamps!.



I stamped an extra headless horseman and colored with Ranger Distress Markers and my water brush; then fussy cut to layer into the scene - taking the place of the two small round items in the sketch.


The final detail was adding a glow around the my flying pumpkin head. I got out my Sakura of America Cray-Pas® Expressionist® Oil Pastels and used yellow and orange to build up a glow around where I'm placing the pumpkin. This really adds movement and the illusion of flames... and with the help of an Action Wobble jiggling device - this pumpkin head is truly airborne! I think I nailed the Viva Las VegaStamps! October inspiration, don't you? CLICK HERE for the details on entering your own creation.
