SIP #14 Sketch Challenge

Good morning!  I've had such a great weekend and am ready for a great week!  Since it's Tuesday, that means another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  This week we have an awesome sketch!  I know you can take this one and run with it! There are endless possibilies with this sketch for sure!

This time I surprised myself!  lol  Yep, I actually made a Halloween card!  I don't make a lot of Halloween cards but I usually do make one for each of my granddaugthers so I thought this sketch would be a great chance to get one of them done.  Yep, one down, four more to go!  :)

I bought some Halloween doilies and paper in a group share (Thanks Regina!) since I don't use a ton of Halloween stuff.  This was just the perfect amount of goodies to get the cards made that I wanted to make.  For my card today I started with an A2 Basic Black card base.  I added a 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that has been embossed in the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then sponged with some Smoky Slate Ink.  The larger rectangle on the left side of the card had a mat of 5 1/8" x 2 1/2" Basic Black cardstock and a layer of Typeset DSP that measured 4 7/8" x 2 1/4".  The smaller rectange had a mat of 3 x 2 1/2" Basic Black DSP and a layer of 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" Happy Haunting DSP.  I added a section of the new Black Spider Web Doilie.  Using the Owl Builder Punch I punched out a Owl in Basic Black.  I used more of the Happy Haunting DSP for his middle.  His eyes were Very Vanilla, Tangelo Twist, and Black.  I punched out two wings with the Bird Builder Punch and gave them a little bit of a jagged trim before adhering them to my owl.  My Sentiment is from the Happy Scenes Stamp set and was stamped on Very Vanila with a Tangelo Twist mat and I cut banner ends in both with the Banner Punch. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll head over to Stamp, Ink, Paper and link
