Boo! And a contest for you too!

Happy Monday everyone! Today’s card is a Hallowe’en card made using another Sunshine Designs stamp cube. Do you own any of these yet? If you do – Krista from Sunshine Designs has a Trick or Treat contest for you! Submit your favorite fall or Hallowe'en cards, scrapbook pages or other paper projects, made using Sunshine Designs stamps – and you could win a fantastic prize of Sunshine Designs products! Click HERE to see all the details. Just remember – the deadline is September 30th - so get your stuff in the mail to Krista. And tell her Pam sent you!
Here’s my take on it – hope it inspires you to make one!

Card dimensions 5 ½ h x 4 ¼ w

Materials: CS –Black, Lilac (Bazzill), Orange; Paper – Accademia (Fabriano); Ink –Black StazOn; Stamp – Hallowe’en Cube (Sunshine Designs); waterbrush, Tombow markers, Pop Dots, black hemp twine (CTMH).

To do the stamped orange background, I used a black Tombow markers and inked up only the BOO! portion of the main image stamp. Once I coloured the BOO! section, I "huffed" on the stamp (to re-moisten the black ink) and then randomly stamped on the orange CS. This is a great way to get coordinating patterned paper that goes perfectly with your main images.
I also distressed the edges of the mat CS (both black and lilac) with the open blade of a pair of scissors.
So, what’s coming up this week? More Christmas projects, and of course, a turtle for tomorrow – Turtle Tuesday!

Until next time, have a great day!
