WMSC61-Halloween Party

First, check out this sketch by Sarah Martina Parker! 

I didn't have to even think this one out, I KNEW that it reminded me of a Halloween Moon with something spooky in silhouette. 





 I used Waltzingmouse's Halloween Party stamp set for this card. 

It has so many great images that would look really scary in front of a bright orange moon and I finally settled on this owl.  I masked off the tree branch the owl is sitting on and embossed it in black to really pop against the orange.  All of the patterned paper is from a really inexpensive paper pack I got at Target last year for $1.  I sure got my money's worth on that purchase.  I stamped a partial sentiment from Halloween Party and centered it right above the owl.  I added a little pinked half circle behind the moon to make it stand out a bit.  I die cut the picket fence and coated it in black Martha Stewart glitter.  I love the way the glitter adds texture to the fence.  I added some ribbon looped over scortape at the bottom and zig zag stitched all around the perimeter.  The final touch was to add a bit more purple, so I stamped the pumpkin and bat and popped them up with dimensionals.  So, what do you think of my take on this sketch?

I love it! So much texture and dimension. Of course, my favorite part is the owl. But you could have guessed. Great stitching--somehow the zig zag contributes to the overall scariness factor. Good job.

Oh wow Cathy, this is fabulous!!
