We've come to the end of another week and another month (where has this year gone?) and once again it's time for the Blogger Challenge. This week was a (Sketch) challenge. I always enjoy sketches because they give you a starting point and that makes things one step easier for me when I create.
For this card I started out picking out the DP and stamp sets I wanted to use. I had found this cool piece of DP (Nevermore - Cosmo Cricket) at our LSS and decided to pair it up with the Jailbirds stamp for the Inkadinkado set, (Ghouls and Goblins) that I bought last year around Halloween and never used. I colored my jailbirds with various shades of Prisma Color Pencils and added sparkle to their eyes with Spica Glitter Pens. I wanted a sort of "shabby" look to my card so I distressed the edges of some of the panels/
My card base is: Basic Black layered with Tangerine Tango and then Naturals Ivory cs that I embossed with the Spider Web Cuttlebug embossing folder after I computer generated the (Spooky) sentiment. I also brayed on some Sahara Sand ink.
I layered my birds onto Pumpkin Pie cs and distressed the edges with a sponge and some Bravo Burgundy ink. Then I added 3 Vintage brads and tied some Pumpkin Grosgrain ribbon around my panel to complete the card.
