Post 338: Pumpkin ATCs (Celebrate Everything!)

Hi folks!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the US :)
Hope you have a wonderful and blessed time with family and friends.

I recently bought some Viva Las Vegas Stamps and decided to make a couple of fun ATCs. When I saw this barfing pumpkin stamp, I was immediately reminded of Chandler from Friends and his stories about Thanksgiving which he used to tell his friends (I'm a big fan of the sitcom) and so I decided to create a couple of ATCs inspired by that.  I suppose they are a bit snarky, just like Chandler. 

Synopsis of the Process:

I did watercoloring with Zig markers for the background and the pumpkin images,  then added background stenciling with an icraft stencil and black archival ink, stamped the sentiment with black archival ink & did some background stamping with the sentiment as well, then added some doodling with white acrylic paint and darkened the edges of the ATCs. In the end, I created a little white splatter with watered down white gesso. 

List of Supplies:

VLVS Until Further Notice
ICraft Stencil
Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink
Prima's Heavy White Gesso
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers 
White Acrylic paint

Here are a few photos of the ATCs

I am playing along with the following challenges:
