With Halloween right around the corner, it's time to be serious about finishing our cards. Three challenges that are hosting Halloween Challenges are: Simply Create Too, Crafting Boutique, and Crazy Cats. That has to be incentive to join the Challenge Fun.
Just to add an extra layer of challenges, I used the Sketch from Sweet Shop Sketch.
I wanted bold and interesting colors. I used a Halloween-themed paper pack, so I could better coordinate the patterns.
One more challenge from Gem of a Challenge finished off my card. The Challenge was to use 3 patterns (my paper), 2 embellishments (ribbon and sentiment sticker), and 1 image (stamped trick-or-treaters).
Here's a technique I love to use — I colored in only small elements on the card. I chose to go with anything that was orange. I did add a layer of clear, dimensional accent onto the skeleton head.
