I finally finished my Halloween card for the WT128 challenge from yesterday! I have very limited halloween stamps, so most of my Halloween cards end up with a trick-or-treat theme. (Probably because of: A.) My sentiment stamp. B.) I have wonderful memories of trick-or-treating with my cousin as a little girl!)
This card is loaded- please forgive me if I forget something! I started out punching stars into the blue BG and layering onto yellow cs. (I didn't really need to do this because now most of the stars are covered up!) For my spooky house (aren't they all a little spooky on Halloween night?)- I stamped the image onto gray cs and dirtied it by sponging black ink onto it. The windows were cut out using my exacto knife and then layered onto yellow cs. The fence is a sizzix die. The trees are punched. The large pumpkin is stamped and pieced (the curly q's are very thin strips of paper wrapped around a toothpick); the sm pumpkin is made from a sm oval punch. THE TRICK-OR-TREATERS are the boy and girl stamp from Heart and Home- I freehand cut ghost costumes for them. Highlights done with various markers. Edges sponged. Sewing done on a sewing machine.
Thanks so much for looking!
