With fall, and Halloween, fast approaching I've been playing around with some ideas for it. My stamp club gals are not always into investing in Halloween specific stamps, so I wanted to come up with some alternatives using other items.
This card uses everyday stamp images/punches, but in a Halloween way! I was playing around with my Sprinkles of Life set and coordinating punch, and this idea just kind of popped into my head!
I haven't played with my owl punch in a looooong time, but I love how he fits in beautifully with Halloween.
Since I was just playing around for me right now, some of the items on here are retired now. The base card, and top layer, are using Confetti Cream. I ran the top layer through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain embossing folder. Finished that off with some sponging in Early Espresso to give the look of a tree. The circle was punched using the 2 1/2" circle punch. I wanted the owl to appear as if he sitting inside the tree. The branch he is sitting on is from Sprinkles of Life. Stamped in Chocolate Chip onto Chocolate Chip card stock. I used two.
My idea for the clouds was to give them a "dark night" look. They were stamped in Smoky Slate ink and then I used Marina Mist and Basic Gray stampin' markers to give them the dark night look. I blended the colors with a blender pen. For a little added punch I put crystal effects on the colored parts.
The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
So, what do you think?
