Inky Paw's Challenge 156 - Sketch Challenge

Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We are at the halfway point of this current challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge.

In keeping with the Halloween theme, I have a fun shaped card

using some uncommon Halloween colors.

I am in love with the way that the background on the card turned out.

I used gray cardstock and the Flying Bats Stencil.

My ink of choice is Black Soot Distress Oxide.

Since you are using black ink, my suggestion would to be to

use a bit of Pixie Spray on the back side of the stencil.

This will keep the black in from bleeding and give you a crisp stenciled image.

Once the background is set aside to dry, I turned my attention to the

images from the Brooms and Boos Stamp Set.

I stamped out and die cut the bats.

I also stamped and die cut one of the witches.

I love the look of pink and black for Halloween.

I chose several different pink markers and started coloring.

Finally, I was ready to assemble the card.

Using the Rounded Edge Rectangle from the Frames and Flags Die Set

I created a card front using the batty background I created.

I also created a base for my images to set using black cardstock.

I layered on my witch and bats on the front of the card with foam tape.

It was at this point that I decided this card needed a little bit more.

Thumbing through my Newton Stamp Sets looking for pumpkins I went.

I ended using pumpkins from Paw-tumn Newton and Harvest Tails Stamp Sets.

I added in a splash of color by using traditional orange on a couple if the pumpkins.

To finish the card, I carefully stamp on a sentiment over my bats and created a

card base using a similar rounded edge die from my Sizzix stash.

This completes my take on our sketch challenge.

Now it is your turn.
