Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #417


Hello and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #417. Today's sketch immediately put me into Halloween mode so I began with a SU! spider web die-cut I've had since last year. I cut it in half and put 2 die-cut stitched ovals on top using royal purple and lime green. The stamped bats and candy corn were made with the Lawn Fawn Trick or Treat stamp and coordinating die set. The main sentiment is also from that cute stamp set.  I heat-embossed the bats with white ep on black, and colored the candy corn with gel pens. The tiny ghost and spider were won in a blog candy a year ago. I added some eyes to the spider with a white gel pen, and some eyes to the tiny ghost with a neon green Copic. The smaller purple die-cut stitched circle was done with a MFT stitched circle die. The background is a retired snippet of SU! dsp I've been hoarding for eons :)


Here's the inside which had a computer generated sentiment and a little pumpkin - also won along with the ghost and spider blog candy. I couldn't waste that little strip of matching dsp after hoarding it so long now could I? :)

Here's this week's sketch :


Be sure to visit the other DT member's blogs for more fun inspiration to use this sketch!



I'm also entering this card into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #11 - cards for kids.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a fun Tuesday!
