Time to Play! WSC61

So happy that I had time to play tonight, and that Beate Johns is keeping the fun open until Wednesday morning with her sketch challenge. I also wanted to do something for the challenge on to create something for Halloween. Brian and I took miss Alexis camping this weekend. Being the last weekend out, I didn't bring any stamping goodies (which is highly irregular).

It's also good to take a break once in a while. I really dislike my coluzzle... I'm coluzzle challenged ~~ That being said, I found some scalloped circles for my sizzix machine and decided to use those to to make my circles for this sketch challenge. I only purchased 1 package of the Halloween DSP this season, so I'm trying to figure out what to do with my technique junkies for this month that will let me use the DSP, but not going over what I have in stock! I may just use it all for myself now, since I'm really having fun with the Halloween theme. I don't usually do Halloween cards, I typically skip right over to Christmas. Boy, I feel like I've been missing out! This was so fun!
I embossed my skull and crossbones and used crystal effects to put glitter on the heart shaped eyes. I used the same glitter with heat and stick powder for the "you rock" sentiment. I originally did it on the grey DSP and it didn't show up.. So, when in doubt add a layer of card stock and keep going. I think it looks much better on the whisper white. I sponged a little black around the purple layer, and added some pumpkin pie color around the focal image with a marker to make him pop a bit. Great weekend sketch. I'm happy that after a 3 day weekend away, I could still play! Thanks for another great sketch.
