Happy Halloween! Anything Goes

This week's the challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Anything Goes and/or Christmas. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, , Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You should check out their blogs to see their gorgeous artwork. 

Our October sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Here's a card with Molly Harrison's October Winds (Sweet Pea Stamps).

October Winds was reduced in PhotoElements, printed out with my laser printer onto Neenah cardstock, colored with Copic markers, then die-cut with one of the dies from the A2 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). Touches of Spica glitter pen (Copic) were added to the cats' eyes and around the circumference of the moon.

Since the stamp is rather detailed, I decided to go with a relatively clean and simple layout. Kraft cardstock was embossed with a Moroccan 5x7 embossing folder, then sponged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink (Ranger). Kraft cardstock was also die-cut with the D-Lites Flourish Trim die (Spellbinders) and one of the dies from the Victorian Tags die set (Spellbinders). Both die-cuts were sponged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. The tag was stamped with the sentiment from the Sentiments 2 stamp set (Purple Onion Designs).

I must mention that Sweet Pea Stamps is going out of business, which is really sad since they had such a wonderful variety of rubber and digital stamps.

Thanks for visiting today!
