Not Your Typical Jack-o-Lantern

Back with another Stamptoberfest challenge card.  This challenge is called Stamp a Jack-o-Lantern.  I know it sounds easy, since we all probably have jack-o-lanterns somewhere in our stamp collections.  But, the idea for this was to take a stamp that is NOT intended to be a jack-o-lantern and turn it into one.

After some rummaging, I came across an old All Night Media stamp set that I bought several years ago.  It has a snowglobe stamp and then a few different stamps that you can use to fill your snowglobe - very christmas/wintery type stuff.    The snowglobe looked perfect to me!

A little coloring and cutting later and I had myself a Jack-o-Lantern!  I colored him in with my Prismacolor pencils and then stamped his face in black. 

The tree stamp is an old PSX favorite of mine - I really hope this stamp lives forever in my collection.  The bats are stamped.  After I cut them out I added some black Stickles to make them look a little more interesting. 

Emma decided the other night that she wanted to get in on the challenge action too and she chose this same challenge.  Here is her card.

She came up with the idea of using the circular sentiment stamp as the body of her jack-o-lantern.  I love the way hers turned out!  And she couldn't have been happier knowing that she was getting to play along with the "big kids". 

Thanks for stopping by,
