OCC...Sketch Challenge




Happy Saturday Peeps!!

It is time for another challenge over on the Our Creative Corner Blog.

This week I am the challenge hostess and as most of you know I LOVE a sketch challenge so, yes you guessed it I have a fun sketch for you:

All my blog followers know that I LOVE Halloween and it is never to early to start making some cool Halloween cards. I used the Stampin Up "Dark & Dreary" Stamp set and the "Frightful Sight" DS paper.
The base of my card is basic black card stock and then I followed that up with some Cajun Craze card stock.  I used the square lattice embossing folder on my circle element on this card. I had originally thought I would use the spider web folder but went with this because the spider web didn't show as well.
I sponged my main image with old olive, pacific point and Cajun craze ink. I masked off the circle in the middle and the white edge. I added some old olive glitter brads and black satin ribbon.





Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun  challenge. I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
