Hi! This card was made for today's Sketch Challenge.
I made this second card today because Speedy the Cat INSISTED! By insisted, I mean he paced back and forth across my computer desk and then would jump over to my stamping table! Then, he started CHEWING up PAPER and ribbons! I GOT the hint and stamped these Treehouse Stamps images! I LOVE this little spider...She's just too cute!
I used Koh-i-noor Woodless Colour Pencils to color the pumpkin. I used Odorless Mineral Spirits with a blending stump to blend the colors.
I then decided to use my "spooky tree" punch for the trees. I wasn't happy with the black trees against part of the black background, so I tried to add highlights with a Signo pen...DID NOT WORK! It looked like SPEEDY THE CAT drew the lines! (Speedy the cat is brilliant, creative and a pain in the neck some times, but he does NOT have opposable thumbs, so his drawing is really on the poor side! LOL!)
While I tried using crayons, embossing powder, and stickles, Speedy the Cat kept knocking the "spooky tree" punch off my desk. After the 7th or 8th time I FINALLY figured out that he wanted me to PUNCH the shadow! DUH!!!! Speedy the Cat is my Stampin' Hero! LOL!
