How Do You Boo?

Hey Krafty friends! Hope you've had a great week and are all geared up for another fantastic challenge at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog!! This week, our hostess is the lovely and very talented Kerry Johnson. Kerry has come up with a great challenge for us...she wants to see us use "Office Supplies" on our projects this week.

This week I inked up another amazing new Halloween themed Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, Mr. Punkinhead. The pumpkin design papers are from Graphic 45...just perfect for this stamp don't you think? The kraft polka dotted paper is from My Minds Eye "Haunted". I sponged around all the paper edges with Black Soot Distress Ink and roughed them up a bit with my scissors. The sentiment comes with The Pumpkin King. For my office supplies, I borrowed a date stamp from work (yes, I asked first!! lol), stamped "Oct 31" and attached it to the image panel with an orange paper clip I found in one of my kitchen drawers. To finish it off, I added a little pumpkin button I picked up at the fabric store last year.

Mr. Punkinhead was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers. I also added some extra shading with my Conte Crayons. I love the soft smoky shading these crayons add. I applied them with a paper blending stump.

Pumpkin: Y00, Y17, Y23, YR02, YR16, E13, E17, E18, E33 Suit: V01, V15, V09, G82, G85, R46, R59, C7

So, are you up to joining our challenge this week? I'm sure you've all got some office supplies in your drawers...your elements could be as simple as paper clips or staples. If you make sure to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your project, you could be the lucky winner of the stamp seen on Kerry's incredible card this week!
