A Haunting Halloween.........Sketch!!


Here is another of my challenge cards for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges!! This one is for a sketch posted by Julia Stainton!

I JUST got this set and had to mount it before I could even play! I knew I wanted to get this set 'dirty' for this challenge, even though we're a little ways away from Hallowe'en!!

The base of the card is a 5 1/2 inch square of Pumpkin Pie and the patterned paper is the designer paper from last year. I have lots left, so I thought I'd play with it. I sponged all the edges....the base with Pumpkin Pie and the designer papers with Elegant Eggplant. On the card base I stamped the little stars and swirls stamp from the set around the edge like a border and the second half of the sentiment is on the bottom right. I used my Sakura Stardust gel pen to make it all sparkly too. The black strip of paper in the centre is distressed along both edges and I added some linen thread and a pumpkin button. For the buttons I had to file off the plastic loop on the back.....my fingers still hurt from doing that! The main image and first part of the sentiment is stamped with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on shimmery white cardstock and I used my SU markers to colour it in. I added some sparkle on that piece too and doodled around the edge. It is matted on Elegant Eggplant cardstock and don'tcha just LOVE that little froggie??? So cute!

Now don't forget about my sketch challenge!!! I don't have ANY entries yet.....are you ladies sick of my challenges???? Let me know if you would like another type of challenge!!! I'm all ears!! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

What a cute card! Been on the fence about getting that set but you may have pushed me over the edge! Sorry, about not making a card yet. I have every intention to but with the DTGD and remodeling at home just haven't had the time. Definitely hope to play. Thanks!
