The challege today was to use tearing on our card. I am not so much in to making cards for Halloween -but I must say this was a fun one to make! I had gotten this spooky tree from Rubbernecker with the idea in mind to put leaves on it and put it in a scene with Kittie Kits. The pumpkin is from SU Fall Whimsy. The fence is from Kittie Kits Beach Cause a Scene (Rubbernecker) and so are the grasses. The "bats" are seagulls from the beach kit!
I swirled my sponge when I was stamping the blue BG to try to get a swirl effect. I tore the edges of the BG paper and did some distressing too. The tree is embossed and I masked the pumpkins. I drew a jack-o-lantern face with a black gel pen. I used scribbles fabric paints for the pumpkin stems. I used SU Baroque Motifs swirl in black to add more swirls.
For not liking to make Hallowqeen cards I surpirsed myself! I like how this turned out! I have a friend who is totally bonkers about 10/31 so I will send this to her! I might have to borrow some stamps to make a few more Trick or Treat cards!
