Hallowe'en/Autumn ATC x 5

I am making 5 ATC's on the theme of Hallowe'en or Autumn
 for the Facebook group ATC Swap UK.

Hallowe'en has always been a favourite festival for me as it is my sister's birthday! 

This is my first ATC:

I started with a 3.5 by 2.5 inch rectangle of black, matted with a 3.25 x 2.25 inch rectangle of orange card.
I then used a Pattie Gomez image 'Bats over Pumpkin Patch' printed twice at 'wallet' size.
I coloured this with Promarkers -Mango, gold and cool grey 4.
I cut out the second pumpkin patch and attached it to the first with dimensionals. 
Finally two die cut bats, also on dimensionals and a gem complete the ATC.

I am submitting this as an entry to the 'Orange and Black' challenge on

I started my second ATC in a very similar way but then added a die cut owl.
I burnished a die cut pumpkin with Metallic Gilding Wax and added this...finally a few gems!

I am submitting this ATC to Emma's Feeling Crafty Challenge with an Autumn theme.

My next two ATC's again start with the black and orange cardstock.
 I then used a Glitzcraft Pumpkins stencil with copper Glitter Frosting Paste to make some pumpkins.
I cut them out and layered them with dimensionals. I added die cuts and gems to finish.

My final ATC - again starting with the orange and black base. I added a 'moon' of pretty paper with gilding was giving it an aura. I stamped a tree over this with 'versafine'. Finally I added a die cut bat. gems and a little ribbon...

and here they all are...

Happy Crafting!
