Fun challenge, Holly! I like the technique and I've used a similar one before. Like Holly, I only stamped the image twice and cut smaller layers out of larger ones. When I had them all cut, then I figured out what would show so I only spent time coloring those areas.
All images are DRS Designs. The entire image is actually contained within the 3 rectangles plus the out of the box little boy. I stamped the leaves only a few extra times, colored them and cut it out to place under the final rectangle on the card front. The sentiment was stamped on a piece I quickly added some color to and cut it apart to fit. A few little leaves were added because too much white space makes me nervous, lol.
Happy Halloween, y'all! Thanks so much for looking! It'll be up on my blog in just a bit. The Write Stuff.
