Ain't Scared !

     Isn't it usually the one who's shouting the loudest about "I ain't scared" who's actually the most scared?  :-D  Well, over at QKR Stampede this week, I'm not at all sure who's doing the shouting - the jack-o-lantern or the ghost but I know we have a new challenge starting today with a theme of "Anything Goes" and an optional twist of "Pumpkins" but only if you want to follow it.


     The image and the sentiment are both from QKR; the image is "Carved Pumpkin 17304" and the sentiment is called "Ain't Scared." 

     I did the coloring with ProMarkers, including the shading on the ghost.  I wanted him to seem transparent so colored the sections of pumpkin behind his arm and his fingers with a pale shade of yellow instead of shades of orange. 

     I cut the image into a square and punched the corners (Fiskars punch), then added the sentiment piece to the lower corner.  I found two scraps bits of dp and used them on the background.  The bow is hand tied from a scrap of sheer ribbon and I deliberately frayed the tail ends.

     I'm so glad the weekend is coming up.  I plan to do a bit of laundry and then I'll hide out in my craft room both days.  I'm not going to pick up a broom or push the vacuum; I'll use paper plates all weekend and cook only in the microwave with disposable dishes.  I need craft time!!  The last two weekends, I've done a couple of cards but did mostly housework.  This week, I really need the down time to recharge emotionally. 

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
