Catherine Moore's Bird & Bee Paperie images

I love Character Construction images by Catherine Moore.  This is Miss Pumpkin Head  (not Catherine's name for her, but mine <**>).  I really should have done a taller card and put a pumpkin skirt on her, but alas, she is gone from me now.  ")  I used a grey cardstock with white swirls to give the feel of a windy night.  I first stamped the spider webs and bat with black ink on the card.  Next I adhered gold-leafing flakes in a swirl so it would appear behind her.  I stamped Miss Pumpkin on orange paper and used markers to accent her bow at the neck.  I computer generated the text (my little diddie ) and printed it off.  I sponged on some orange and ochre inks and cut out and layered on black scrap cardstock.  I glued one  partially covering the spider web at the upper left corner.  The other text I glued to Miss Pumpkin's "hands" so she would be holding it.  I drew the little pumpkins, colored them in and cut them out.  I glued them in front of the lower spider web.  I used a black Zig Micro pen to draw the spider on the web.  I attached Miss Pumpkin to the card with dimensional tape.  I sponged orange ink around the edges of a paper button and added the orange embroidery thread and attached it to the card. I then added the gold moon to the card with glue dots.  I lightly edged the card with brown ink.
