Gettin' Sketchy for Hand Stamped Sentiments

It's beginning to get chilly in the evening and the days don't seem quite as long.  I am feeling the season changing and so I am getting in the mood for fun and festive fall projects.  For our new sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments I decided to bust out the Monster Bash Bundle.

The Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set and the Ornate Frames Dies make up the Monster Bash Bundle.  I used both of those along with Monster Bash Designer Series Paper on this card.  I stamped with Momento Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then colored with Stampin' Blends.  To get an eerie look I scribbled over each colored image with the Color Lifter Stampin' Blend.  Now this only works if your Color Lifter is like mine and a bit dirty!

What I absolutely love about making anything for Halloween is if you make a smudge, smear, tear, or color outside the lines it's totally okay.  In fact this card features smearing, like I mentioned, and splattering with a Wink of Stella Brush.

  1. I LOVE your card!!! I love the little frame tucked in behind Dracula and the smeary Stampin' Blends coloring. I am going to try that - it does give an eerie effect and any technique that looks better the less perfect I try to make it is a technique I LOVE.
