Halloween Wishes

It's Monday Sketch time! This week's sketch is provided by Ms. Angela Lemmons. Of course, I made a Halloween card. I used my PTI Spooky Sweets II stamp set and last year's Creepy Crawly dsp from SU! I had trouble with the main image, the idea in my head wasn't working out so well on paper. I decided to emboss the white part of the main image with the Swiss Dots folder and that made all the difference. I stamped some polka dots in Brilliance Ink Moonlight White (using PTI Polka Dot Basics stamp set)on the card base in lieu of a panel and I stamped large dots on both sides of the white ribbon using a sponge dauber dipped in Pumpkin pie ink. This is my first time stamping on ribbon and I can't wait to try it again. I love this witch image even though she was a bit of a chore to cut out.

I hope you're inspired to try the sketch this week. Don't forget to check out the creations by these lovely ladies:

  5. LOVE this! I've been hoarding that DSP to put in a scrapbook someday but this card is too cute not to case! :) Love the swiss dots in the middle!!

  6. Looks like this card is from five years ago, and it's still floating people's boats after all these years. This card came up at the head of the pack when I did a Google search. Your use of the polka dots throughout the design is just fantastic. Glad I found it. And, I had a look at your Flickr gallery, and you are the queen of gift wrapping. Your designs are sensational. Thanks for sharing.
