TSSC28 witchy poo and boo

so once again mary jo really had me stumped with her sketch AT FIRST. but then as i was rocking the baby to sleep it suddenly hit me - the circle could be a great big moon!

i flipped the sketch to make it work - my original scarecrow stamp was too big so used the cute little ghost and pumpkins:

this card was so fun cause i got to use LOTS of new goodies that just seemed to all hit at once! dontcha LOVE that!!

the background is run thru the cuttlebug with swiss dots, inked with black memento dew drop ink pad (the dew drops are so much easier for this). once dry i smooshed it back flat again and then ran it through with the floral screen folder and inked with sage versamagic dew drop - i just started playing with these as i JUST got them in to stock on the website and oh MY i love them!!! the circle is sprayed with gold perfect pearls mist and then the witch (inkadinkado) is stamped in black brilliance and brushed with pearl perfect pearls.

the ghost (peachykeen) is stamped in black memento and colored with copics. the ghost is covered in opal liquid pearl. gold glitter accents are champagne glitz stickles. eek is a studio g stamp. the little bat is cut on my cricut and highlighted with the inkssentials white pen - WOW does that thing work well!!!

everything used except the ghost stamp, paper and cuttlebug folders are available on my website.

As you read this i will be on day two of the creating keepsakes convention in valley forge - can't wait!!
