Here is my card for the second round challenge. Anyone who knows me could have safely bet money that I'd pick the sketch for The Nightmare Before Christmas ... and could win more if they bet I'd draw inspiration for my card from the movie. Hee! I can't help myself ... I'm NUTS about all things Halloween and this movie is definitely in my top five Halloween picks! I had to fight myself to not put pumpkins and spiders and goblins and ghosts on my card. Haha!
Stamped Dweeze (Stampotique by Daniel Torrente) and "did" his eyes w/Signo gel and Zig black. Colored his scarf, elbow patch and "gloves" w/a Sakuro red glaze pen and a Signo white gel pen (I was going for candy cane colors here.) I colored the buttons with a Sakura greenish/blue glaze pen. I masked Dweeze and then used a SB template to add the winter moon with Ranger di. Stamped the snowflakes in a swirl and added a dot of Stickles to the center of each. Layered on SU NofN and a kraft base.
THANKS for looking! :)

I have never seen that movie, but it sure looks to me like you captured the movie from the sketch to the characters!!
