Boo! Boo!


Hello!  I had decided not to make Halloween cards this year as I have a stash of them.  But Halloween cards are so much fun to make and I have a stash of supplies.  One of my  fave Halloween stamps is this Northwoods Owl stamp from 2009.   I stamped it on a shimmery gray CS with Versamark  and embossed with a Black Mix EP.  I sponged the moon with Memento Dandelion and Morocco inks and the sky with Memento Paris Dusk and Grape Jelly inks. Added some details to the owl with Gold Metallic and Orange glaze pens. Isn't he the Spookiest Owl you've ever seen? Finished with Black Card Base, layer of Orange CS embossed with Cuttlebug EF Forest Branches, some spooky spider confetti, and Mark Finest Papers sentiment from 2012 I'm Going Batty set.

Challenges:
Retro Rubber: Challenge 49 Boo!  It's Halloween.  Stamps from 2009 and 2012.
Addicted to Stamps Challenge: #133 Embossing Wet or Dry.  Used both type embossing on this card.
Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge 215 Photo Inspiration.  Was inspired by the spooky moon in the Photo.
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

The embossed panel is wonderful as is the background for the owl. But no matter how you paint it, the owl is not spooky... simply wonderful! Thanks so much for including Retro Rubber in you challenge combination! Love seeing you in our gallery!!
