Try Stampin' On Tuesday Sketch Challenge


When I saw this sketch, I couldn't resist doing another Halloween card.  I love it when I actually see a card in my mind before I get started.  Most of the time, I'm blankly staring a paper wondering where to begin.  This card turned out better than I thought it would.

I'm not posting it on the sketch website because I didn't add the horizontal piece.  I'm not sure I stayed true to the original sketch.

I don't think you can see it in this photo, but I paper pierced the black mat.  I love how it adds a little extra touch to what seems like a wide mat.  Also, I inked my greeting stamp using a Tangerine Tango stamp pad and then colored a few letters with a Basic Black marker right over top of the Tangerine Tango ink. 

Here's everything I used:
