Spooky {SS}

How many days until Halloween?!
We're almost there and the weekly challenge at Sweet Stamps
is perfect for Halloween.
The theme is 
SPOOKY
I sorta fell in love with this spooky creation after it was complete. 
The background is shaded with alcohol inks and then I heat embossed the Trees in black. 
Those adorable..I mean spooky Halloween  Harvest Accents 
are also embossed with black enamel powder.  They steal the show, don't they?
I snipped some paper pieces, aged it using Gathered Twigs ink and layered it to accomplish 
the hilly walk toward the trick or treat moon. 
That big sparkly moon is a die cut circle of glittered paper shaded with Copic inks.

Autumn Blessings {SS}

It's my day to share on the Sweet Stamps Challenge Blog.
Our challenge theme this week is Anything Goes.
And since the monthly technique challenge is Pop Up Box Card 
I decided to do both themes for my project.
I used craft paper for my Fall Owl stamp images and lots of colored pencils.
It was quite relaxing to sit and do some coloring for a bit. 
The stenciled background papers are created using 
Then lots of fussy cutting, added shine on those big eyes, 
some bling and here is my Autumn Blessings creation. 

You have a bit more time to join our 
and the Monthly Technique Challenge,
is in full swing as well.

Thanks for taking a minute to stop by and say hello!
