Happy Little Stampers: October Sketch Challenge



Hi everyone! I hope you all checked into the blog hop for my buddy Kylie's new stamp company- "Happy Little Stampers". She has some awesome stamps in the first release and rumor has it there will be a second release coming up in the not to distant future.

Now onto the sketch challenge for October. You know I had to do something spooky! It's Halloween time! 


No stamping!! Yikes- I hope I don't get tossed out on the street for not using stamps!!??!! My Martha Stewart punch is the perfect focal point for this spooky card. I rarely pull out my punches these days, what with all the dies that are available. Punches are becoming old school.


I masked out the moon and sponged the background with a few distress inks and flicked some water to add texture.


My card has no sentiment on the front. I almost NEVER do this, but it just didn't need it. The scene says it all, dontcha think?

Please  join us at HLS for some amazing challenges and check out what everyone else did for the sketch challenge!

Brilliant! I love this card. We don't do halloween here but my nieces and nephews love getting dressed up. I also love that you don't have a sentiment. I do that a lot! xx
