it's the great pumplin, charlie brown

I love this inchie – it turned out so cute! Originally I was going to go with another idea (which I now forget), but then I remembered that I wanted to use this pumpkin rubber stamp (by Hot Fudge Studio). I can’t do Halloween inchies without a pumpkin, right?

Lily assisted me with this one. I started working on it in the afternoon, and of course she wanted to see what I was doing (normally I do my arts and crafts after she’s in bed, for good reason). She asked if she could help, so I said sure. We started with a piece of ivory cardstock (I just love ivory cardstock – it’s so versatile). She applied the antique linen Distress Ink, and helped to spritz it with walnut ink and Glimmer Mist. And then she stamped a whole bunch of pumpkins. We experimented with several different inks (Versacolor black, Colorbox copper, and walnut Distress Ink). The pumpkin I chose was done in the Versacolor black ink.

I cut out a piece of decorative paper and heavily applied Distress Inks. I also spritzed the inchie blank with Glimmer Mist before adding anything. The words of course have Distress Inks applied (I have such a newfound love of Distress Inks that I have in the past couple weeks purchased them in fired brick and peeled paint).

I am just so pleased with this inchie. Every time I look at it I smile. I wish I could find that Charlie Brown special on tv. I know I looked for it last year too and I couldn’t find it then either.

Have a wonderful Halloween!
