Spooky Halloween

I love to make Halloween cards and the new stamp sets were calling my name!  Greeting Card Kids & Wicked Cool.  The bats in Wicked Cool remind me of the Scooby Doo Cartoon, one of my favorites as a child.  I started with Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the girl with Black Stazon.  Next I watercolored the image (light on the water since this is Whisper White) with my SU Classic Inks.  I then took a Versamark Pen and colored over the image and then applied Clear Embossing powder and heated.  I punched out a 1 3/4" Circle and applied Dotto adhesive to the back and then brayered the whole card in Daffodil Delight.  Using sponge daubers I then sponged on the Wild Wasibi for the grass, Pumpkin Pie was next around the whole card, then Crushed Concord and some Early Espresso.  I removed the Moon mask and sponged the moon lightly with Daffodil Delight, to give it a little depth I sponged a little darker in some spots.  Then stamped the bats flying in the moon.  The Scallop Oval around my sentiment was punched then I put Dotto on a strip of paper and put the Oval back into the punch at different angles to get the jagged edges.  The Sentiment is done with Heat & Stick powder and Black Glitter.

Thanks for stopping by :-)
