Free Pumpkins

Happy Monday - I hope you have a fantastic week and are not too busy with work.

I have to go into school today, in fact I have to go into Oxford to a planning application meeting at the County Council but I will be back later to catch up with all my blogging buddies and do some commenting - I am so behind with that.

I have just treated myself to some new Halloween stamps, but I wanted a pumpkin one without the face drawn in so I decided to draw my own. I have used it on this tag which has a Halloween background but is very much made with autumn colours.

The button is plastic but I managed to stamp on it and I have added lots of bits and pieces from my box of bits. You can see the Halloween images in the background on this photo.

This is my drawing and I coloured just enough of the pumpkins for my tag.

This was printed on cheap photocopy paper and coloured with Promarkers.

If you would like to take the pumpkins digi, please do so. I made it in Photoshop Elements and saved it as a jpeg file. If you use it please be courteous and link it back to me on your blog and if you leave me a message I will come over to see what you have done. Click on it and enlarge it to get the best file for downloading.

Thank you for looking today and a special thanks if you are a regular and leave me all those wonderful messages I get, I so love reading them.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

What a generous soul to share your artwork digi! That's so sweet!

I'm sorry it has taken me a week to stop by and comment. I love this tag, it is so rich and interesting to look at - there's all sorts of texture, color (v. vibrant), and collage bits to enjoy! What a pleasure, it looks like it was great fun to make and I like how you made your own pumpkins to fit what you wanted!

Thank you for participating with us at Opus Gluei, it is this kind of creativity that is a real pleasure to see. I hope you come back for more challenges and a chance to play with us!
