SSSC138......Wicked Halloween



Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:


This was toughie!!!
 I almost didn't even get one done! I started out mid week on my card, when I got prompted by some other over achievers on the sketch team,  :) I got the base and BG done but really didn't know for sure what I wanted to do for the main image panel, so I just put it aside til later. I got back to it yesterday afternoon and tried a few different things before settling on what you see.

 I used the DSP from the "Pick Your Poison" paper pack on the BG and for the main panel. I stamped directly onto some of the DSP.  I used the Stampin Up "Out On A Limb" stamp set. I stamped the "Limb" a few times to make the tree. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to add the bats, using just two instead of the three that are on the stamp.
I punched a 1-1/4 inch circle into a scrap piece of card stock and used that to make my moon. I sponged peach parfait, pumpkin pie and tangerine tango ink into the circle.


I added some pumpkin pie satin ribbon and silver pearls for my accents. The strip across the middle is made up a piece from the Pick your Poison Quick Accents and I added a black scallop piece. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up "Wicked Cool" stamp set and is stamped with black stazon onto the DSP and punched out with the 1'1/4 inch circle punch and I matted with a 1-3/8 inch circle punch of black.


I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:







Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Love your beautiful card, Vicki! The mixed background of DSP really sets off the simple stamped image! I haven't ordered this particular package of paper, but now you've made me want to do so! Awesome job!
