DeNami Sketch Challenge 4

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Hi everyone! Today I have a card for the DeNami Sketch Challenge 4, which you can find here. I really love this sketch that Sherry created. It's simple, but interesting at the same time! I decided to make a Halloween card because I haven't made any yet this year. And you know what? I actually haven't made ANY Halloween cards since 2006!!! I never really owned any Halloween stamps...but that changed when I bought this adorable Jack O'Lantern Trio stamp from DeNami Design at the CHA show this year! I just love it! It's so cute! I also don't have too many markers, so I don't do a whole lot of coloring in images. Maybe one of these days I will get a few Copics to start a collection. many things I want to buy, buy, buy.....

I am very happy with how this turned out. The orange patterned paper is something I found in my stash that I had bought years ago. I don't have too many embellishments that match this color scheme, so I created my own by spelling out the words "BOO" and "EEK"! I used a small circle punch to make the green circles, stamped the letters on each one, and used purple Stickles to accent the edges. I also used dimensionals on each one to give them some extra oomph! Hope you like it. I would love to hear your feedback :) Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, and be sure to stop by again on Monday, Oct 4th. It's the first day of the new weekly Paper Therapy challenges! I will have my first Design Team card posted here on my blog, and on the Paper Therapy site. Come check it out! We'd love to have you participate! There will be a prize for this one ;-)
