Boo!


Skipping Stones Design is sponsoring the Sketch for You to Try this month - did you know that?  I just had to ink up the featured set, Happy Halloweenie, again for this card using the sketch.  I thought about using some patterned papers but in the end I settled on the three card stocks in shades of purple.  And here's a fun tip: see the little black arrow-like thing on the left side of the panel that runs across the card?  It's the extra piece from the corner rounder when I rounded the top of the card.  I unfolded it and glued it right on there!

You should head over to the Sketch for You to Try blog and play along!

Supplies: 
Stamps: Happy Halloweenie (Skipping Stones Design)
Card Stock:  Black (Recollections), Plum Pudding, Grape Jelly, Berry Pretty Dotted Swiss (Bazzill)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Crushed Grape (Ranger)
Coloring Medium: Copics (C00, C2)
