Trick or Treat
My favorite thing about Halloween, is how cute all the kids look dressed up for trick-or-treating. So, that is what inspired this card that was for the S2G Twisted Thursday challenge 25 and for the make a Halloween card challenge at Die Cuts R Us. The catch was to use the sketch and a Halloween embellishment. I thought if you turned the sketch upside down, the circle element would make a great moon.I used some brayer techniques that I love trying to duplicate from Michelle Zindorf's blog (although she is the master - and I am just playing!)I cut the little witch with the cricut with A Child's Year cart (still my all time favorite!) The tree is stamped with a CTMH stamp (Spellbound). For it, I inked it in versamark, then black momento ink. Stamped the first generation, then moved it slightly and stamped a 2nd generation for the shadows. I embossed the entire tree and inked over it. I added black shard glitter glass from art glitter for the road and oversprayed the entire card with Tattered Angels tiger lily.
