Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #316 - Festive Pumpkins

Aack, halfway through October! Where is the year going? Luckily there's no time to worry about that right now because it's time for a Tuesday Throwdown challenge. Our sponsor is Doodle Pantry and the theme is Festive Pumpkins.

I choose the Pumpkin Peeps set. This set comes with sentiments, background papers and both pre-colored and line drawn images. I fell in love with the pig in the pumpkin, though that panda was pretty darn tempting. For the first time in my stamping experience I opted to use a pre-colored image.

I printed off the little pumpkin piglet, cut with a slight border and mounted to a 5" x 7" black card blank. Since Halloween is coming up, I stamped, then embossed the monster manners stamp (bought eons ago from Inky Antics) in white. Trimmed some word paper to add a bit of border on the left for balance.

 I hope you enjoy the result.

Can't wait to see how everyone gets their pumpkin on so don't forget to enter the challenge!

Parting thought:
  • What's the ratio of a pumpkin's circumference to its diameter? 
  • Pumpkin Pi  (3.1428571428571428571428571428571)
