MTSC83......Greeting Card Kid

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today I have another Halloween project, well a card anyway! This is one of the first sets I knew I would order when seeing the new catalog. This cute litte set of kids kinda remind me of the Campbell Soup Kids, remember them?

I did find them a bit hard to color, they are small with little details, making it a bit harder to watercolor, for me anyway, my eyes are not as good as they once were.

This card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge.

All the DS paper used here is retired from a few different packs. I just pulled some out I liked and I also used pumpkin pie, concord crush and old olive card stock. I cut the circles with my nesties, one for the little witch image and an open concord crush one was created by using two nesties one inside the other, the circle is a bit off but not to bad. I used the inverted scalloped circle nesties in old olive to mat the main image. The sentiment is grom the Grateful Greetings set. I stamped with black stazon and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up, even with that it took me three times to get it acceptable....UGH!!!

I added some vintage brads three inside the circle and one on each end of the sentiment piece.

Well, that is all from me today, I won't have anymore Halloween for awhile, anyway. LOL!!!

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