Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great weekend. Our daughter is already back in school so we're off to the races again in our house. :-) Today's card features the sketch I designed for this week's sketch challenge over at The Paper Players
Fun, eh?! I knew that I wanted to use some Witches' Brew Washi Tape
for the diagonal elements so I went looking for some Halloween papers and stamps:
Turns out that I don't have any current Halloween DSP or stamps so I decided to make my own in My Digital Studio (MDS)! To make the background paper I started with a 4" x 5.25" design that I filled with Smoky Slate. I added the Happy Halloween sentiment from All Holidays Stamp Brush Set
, colored it in Basic Gray (made it slightly lighter) and repeated it all over the background. This isn't as difficult as it sounds because in MDS you can use copy and paste to quickly cover a broad area. I added a spider web from Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Brush Set
and some Ink Splatters.
The sweet Halloween kitty is also from Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Brush Set
. I gave him a 100% drop shadow in Whisper White to achieve the moon glow look. I printed both the cat and background paper on Whisper White and cut and punched to size. I just added the Washi Tape, Natural Ribbon and some punched chevrons to my digital "paper" to complete this hybrid card.
Not to let the inside go unfinished, I inked a sentiment from Seasonal Sayings with markers and added more Washi Tape and some Smoky Slate spots from Gorgeous Grunge.
