Lorie Souther :: Ready, Set, Glow!!

Good morning!
Well, I've been sharing posts from our talented designers at Peachy Keen Stamps for almost two weeks and it's FINALLY my turn to share a project with you!  I hope you've enjoyed all of the amazing things that have been shared here, and I also hope that you've been visiting The Timeless Twine Blog each day as well to see the  wonderful works of art that their team has to share.

For my card, I decided to use a stamp set that's a favorite of mine.  It's actually one that I drew?  Ha!  Can you believe that?  I can't!  This is one from the Country Bumpkin line.  Jack-O-Light is a lot of fun to color.  Now in the case of the card today, you might notice there's a lack of color, where Mr. Jack is concerned  I have to admit that I'm kinda a little more than obsessed with these pretty white pumpkins that I see this time of year, and I find myself looking for them nearly everywhere I go.  I love the pale almost ghostly skin on them, but when you actually carve one, the flesh is just as orange and pumpkin colored as can be.  Put a light in them, and the orange glow is SO PRETTY!

I colored this image with Copic markers, and added some Flower Soft Ultra Fine Sprinkles in Earth and Toffee colors to ground Mr. Jack.  To make great use of the beautiful Kraft and Black Timeless Twine, I decided to crochet around the edges of the card stock.  I love the way it turned out.  It made the perfect little frame for Mr. Jack.  After all the crocheting was finished, I wrapped some more twine around the top of the card and finished it off with a handmade bow of twine.  

I'm so glad you could stop by today and I hope you'll be joining us here again through Sunday when we'll have more stampy and twiney goodness to share with you!  Have a wonderful day, and HAPPY STAMPIN!!
