Pick a Pumpkin, or Two - Smudgy Antics Challenge & S.O.D.

If you're looking for Day 3 of the 31 Days of Halloween, it's the post below this one.

Hello, all! It's time for another Smudgy Antics Challenge! This week the challenge is called "Pick a Pumpkin, Or Two". The description of the challenge is below:

Time for a new weekly challenge! We're getting in the mood for fall and Halloween with this one, and our wonderful DT members have made some amazing projects yet again. We hope you enjoy them!

As always, here's a reminder about the rules:

*Each Monday morning a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that week's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to the post using the Inlinkz linky. Your link must take us directly to your project on a publicly accessible blog or website, or it will be disqualified - so please make sure you're linking to your actual post. It must be linked by midnight on the following Saturday, Pacific Time. This gives you six days to complete the challenge.

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, mixed media, altered or 3-D item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

*You must use AT LEAST 1 Smeared Ink image on your project. You are allowed to use anything else that you like.

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge.

So let's get to it! Here's this week's info.

The Challenge:


The theme says it all....have fun with it!

Here is my sample for this challenge!

Pumpkin Picking Layout. The pumpkin stamps are from Smeared Ink. I used Copics to color the pumpkins in. Everything else I used on this page is from my September Scraps of Darkness Passages Kit. The paper is from Teresa Collins Traveler Collection. The flowers are from Prima's Conventry Rose and Flower Market Collections in Londonerry. I split one of the cork circles from the kit to use as bases for the flowers. I added some stitching with my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Tool and embroidery floss. I added some Prima Toggle  Bobbin Wood Buttons, Teresa Collins World Traveler Brads, and Bo Bunny Et Cetera Chipboard Alphas colored with Copics. I also inked all the papers' edges with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.
