attempted murder meets sleepy hollow

 I have five Halloween/Fall-ish sets that released this month for Whimsy Stamps and they're all combinable with one another.  I'll be showing you lots of posts over the next several days using primarily these five Tim Burton-ish, Sleepy Hollow, Grim, Gothic and Autumn stamps sets for all your Halloween and fall card-making fun. 

I first made a stencil with a cloud die and sponged on light blue ink to create the sky.  Then I stamped the fence from the Attempted Murder set and colored it with Copic markers.  This fence is designed so you can keep extending it to make it as long as you want it to be.  
I stamped the pumpkins and jack-o-lantern head, colored all with Copics and fussy cut them out.  The scarecrow was cut using the Sleepy Hollow matching dies set.  No way was I going to try and fussy cut around his straw fingers! 

The grass was done using Copics and a flicking technique, I first flicked in all the grass then added the pumpkins and did more flicking on top of them so it looks more natural than just two blobs sitting out in front of the card.

The scarecrow in the Sleepy Hollow set has a different head which has a meanie face which of course has his place (you'll see him in other posts) but for this card I wanted a happier punkin' head so I used the one from the Headless Horseman set instead.  Remember, everything works together so you have oodles of options.

The trees and leaves were stamped and colored with Copics and then last but not least the AUTUMN sentiment was stamped to complete my card.
