Starry Jack

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Sigh...I wish fall would hurry up and get here. I love the cooler weather, the fabulous fall color & boots. Love me some boots. But it's a little too hot for them in summer. I would gladly trade in my fancy flip flops & pedicures for a pair of boots. Sigh....someday soon, I hope. 

In preparation of Halloween & hopefully of a fall coming, I have a sparkly starry jack o'lantern card to share today. To begin, I stamped the Jack O'Lantern, colored w/ Copics, added a little Wink of Stella to the stars & buckle then fussy cut it. For the white panel, funny enough, but I already had it w/ the embossed greeting & the big star cut out of it. Seriously...I save everything! And more often than not, it pays off. I thought it made the perfect backdrop for Jack & the die cut stacked stars down the right when attached on top of a black layer.
The stacked stars were die cut out of black, gold glitter & coppery orange glitter card stock then paper pieced all together. In person, the coppery orange is a lot more orange but not so bright it overshadows the orange in the jack o'lantern.  Below is the inside..I used a negative of the stacked stars as a mask & sponged the colors through it. And the Copics I used to color Jack are right underneath it.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
