Supplies Needed
A Pumpkin

Graphics Plus Cross Shadow
Xenofex 2 Constellation

The tube I used Pinup Witch is by Lix, you can purchase this tube from PTE here

In this tutorial I'm going to assume you're using the same tube.  If using something else you may need a pumpkin tube or something else of your choice
Look through your autumn/halloween kits

Today my dad would have turned 84 but he died at a young age on Sept 1, 1979 just before turning 52.  So today all my tuts are dedicated to him.
Love you dad!
