Paper Smooches October Challenge!

Took a few moments to play along with a fun challenge over at Paper Smooches!  The October challenge is a sketch challenge and the graphic is below.

I decided to make a Halloween card because I'm also playing along with the Twisted Thursday challenge over at the Outlawz which is any Autumn Holiday and the current challenge over at Double Trouble is Halloween/Fall and they're partnering with the Paper Girls this time around who also have a Halloween Theme so I'm playing along there too!

I started with my background and ink blended some blue, purple and black onto the cardstock.  Then I sponged some Versamark through a star stencil and embossed with some white and gold glitter embossing powder.  I kind of messed up because I didn't think I'd gotten any versamark through the stencil so I went in a second time but of course it wasn't lined up and I had gotten Versamark on!  But I'm good with it... it's just a little more distressed than my initial!  The buildings and bats create the design that is in the sketch.

Love the adorable ghosts in the Spookalicious stamp set!  They're not really in the sketch... but that's ok... they're part of the "background"!  I use sketches quite loosely most of the time.  The cool bat die cuts were cut with the Halloween Icons dies. 

And these buildings from the Super 2 Dies... so cool!  And the sentiment is from Spookalicious... so sweet, right?

So here's the sketch for Paper Smooches:

Hope you'll play along!  And don't forget that we're all about Fall/Halloween over at Three Amigos this month too!!

This is such a fabulous card! I love how you created an entire scene here. The sky is so pretty and I like how you're paired sophisticated techniques with adorable imagery! This made me smile and I especially like the sentiment. This came together perfectly and I'm go glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
