WMSC71 Halloween card

Happy Halloween everybody....if you are looking for my DT Ribbon Reel post please click here or scroll down...

WMSC71 Halloween Card

This is my card for this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 71. I used a few different Waltzingmouse stamp sets on this card. I actually did some masking (quite rare for me!) to create the pumpkin patch border along the bottom of the card by stamping the pumpkins image (from Bountiful Basket Additions) repeatedly in a row. I then used Copic markers to colour the pumpkins and leaves to really make them pop off the page. I created the check/plaid design by stamping the border strips from the Picnic Patterns stamp set in black onto purple card. The sentiment is from Say it Loud Winter Holiday (love that font!) and the little bat is from Wandas Pantry.

Now you can pop on over to the Waltzingmouse Blog to see what the Design Team have created for your inspiration and all the other wonderful entries into this weeks challenge.

Thanks for visiting and big Spooky Hugs,

Helen x

HELEN! That pumpkin patch you created is spectacular! Perfectly masked and stamped. That ribbon is AMAZING! Oh yes, not to forget about the lovely purple plaid you made. What a fab card for the sketch challenge, yay!

So much to love about your card Helen. The plaid is stamped beautifully, and those pumpkins all masked and neatly stamped along the bottom, genius! The gorgeous bow was just the cherry on top of a fabulous card.
