Jack-O-Lantern for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

 Hello friends!  I hope you're continuing to do well!  It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  Tenia has created a fabulous board, and while I've used it to make a Halloween card, there are lots of options for other designs if Halloween isn't your thing.  

I chose to go down the middle (mixed media, splatter, orange) for my card.

I LOVE this stamp from Colorado Craft Company and the card that Sandy Allnock made last year, that I pretty much copied for my card.  I did add stars to the night sky, have a different sentiment and a bit different card design, as much as you can with that large of an image.  Ole' Jack, he was stamped then the entire scene was stamped with Copic markers.  For stars, I strategically added white gouache splatters to avoid the pumpkin and leaves, then filled in more with a white gel pen.

The Royal Purple card base is 5"x7", then a piece of dark orange patterned paper was adhered directly to the base and the main image atop that. Since I trimmed down the left side of the panel on which the pumpkin was stamped, I aligned both those panels to the left side of the card base.  Finally, the heat embossed sentiment strip was added with foam tape.  Minimal dimension for easy mailing!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek, I always appreciate your visits!  Be sure to use the link above to check out the challenge and the fabulous cards of the other DT members!
