This week at Create with Connie and Mary there is a sketch challenge and I thought it would be fun to play along. And since I have been creating so many Christmas projects lately I thought I should ink up a Halloween set as it is only just over a month away, so I decided to use the super fun Wicked Cool Stamp Set.
For the card base I used Old Olive, then attached a strip of More Mustard DSP that I stamped the bat images on with Basic Gray Classic Ink. I then used the cool new Bat Punch and punched a piece of Basic Black Textured card stock, next using the Decorative Label Punch I centered the negative of the bat and punched. Heather Summers showed us at Convention that the "Spooky" would fit inside the bat. Using a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped the Hat image in Rich Razzleberry and the cute Boots with Basic Gray then cut them out using my Paper Snips.On another scrap of paper I stamped "Spooky" in More Mustard. For the main panel I stamped the spider webs with Basic Black ink and matted it on Basic Gray card stock. I wanted to something a little different for the ribbon piece so I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch with Rich Razzleberry card stock then attached Old Olive Grograin Ribbon and finished it with a sparkly new Glimmer Brad. But I couldn't just stop with the glitter there-I had to throw in some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for good measure!
