Still more Halloween cards!

What a crazy busy week! I FINALLY had time to sit down and do a little stamping yesterday. I decided to be a multi tasker and participate in not one but TWO challenges. For the first one I used Amy's weekly sketch challenge I kinda turned it sideways to make my paper look right. I also played along with Leigh's Freaky Friday Challenge. I have been wanting to participate for the past 2 weeks, but, well.... you know how that goes sometimes.

This week was to make a Halloween card using Old Olive, Dark Orange, Purple and black. I was NOT a good instruction reader and did not realize until today that neutral card stock was also acceptable. Grrr... It's all good though, I think the tree looks very nice against the olive background.

I inked up my TCP Halloween stamps. The images are SO adorable!!! I used Versamark and then embossed the tree and owl with black powder. There is something SO satisfying about watching the it turn from powder to shiny... K, the paper is from SU! and a stack I got at Archivers. I also used my Martha Stewart bat punch and covered them in black Stickles. I then added a few orange Stickles to my owl and finished it off by coloring in the eyes with my white gel pen.
A little ribbon and that's it!

I have more to post later, so enjoy for now!!!
