This is my 'effort' ;-) for the Wednesday Stampers. Halloween is not in my life since I've come to receive Christ as my Saviour... and below are two interesting and informative reads regarding this topic. Hope you'll take a look. ....Since I wanted something non-spooky here on my work, here's my original idea...which kind of flopped...smile. Beneath the stamped pumpkin the children are pulling..is what was supposed to be a VERY cute Mr. Candy Corn. He was cute as anything too when I stamped him on cardstock & drew in arms and legs....he was smiling and waving as he walked along in the moonlight....as the caption overhead read ...'By the light of the silvery moon'. But when I glued him to the collage...oh boy, he just didn't measure up to my idea of even remote success. The most interesting component of this collage is the rubber comb effect I got on the background by painting cardstock two different colors and then 'combing' it. The pumpkin is stamped on a coffee filter. And for a very interesting read on "Halloween" check these out...I appreciated reading them both. The first is geared for children, and the second is a blog post by a good friend, and a great read about her personal experiences.
