Scotty Halloween with i-Crafter

 ** please scroll down for the Tuesday Morning Sketches post **

Hey there!  Thank you for stopping by.  My first post is on the i-Crafter blog today.  I had the best time making this card.  The owner, Lynda Kanase, challenged us to think outside the box for our projects.  So who thought Scotty Holiday die set could be a super cute Halloween card?!

Isn't this cute!  I don't make too many Halloween cards but I wanted to challenge myself because this just isn't my genre.

I started with my base of white card stock and pulled out my box of Distress Oxide inks.  I first blended on Squeezed Lemonade, then around that Scattered Straw, building my color out I then used Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Stormy Sky.  I love this ethereal background!

I cut the spider web element and snipped it out and glued to the corner of the base.

I cut out a few bats, the dog, the bow, the pumpkin and the sentiment.  The dog I added a few highlights using Pumice Stone Oxide ink.  Then snipping off one of the bat wings I used this for a mask.  I cut out two bows and layered them so that I had two tails to make it look like his mask is tied on.  For the pumpkin and I did ink the edges a little with Black Soot, added a scrap of black card stock to the back and cut a sliver of a strip of black card stock to fashion the handle.  Glued it so that it looks like the dog is carrying his pumpkin bucket.  I sat him atop the Happy Halloween sentiment. 

This was a super fun card and I hope it inspires you to look at your dies with a different eye.
