Witch Way Is The Candy? FMS309

October 19, 2017

It is a beautiful day in Atlanta, GA!  I didn't have winning results on the tennis court today, so I thought I would play in my tepee to drown my sorrows.  LOL!

I love the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and my friend Linda is the lovely hostess this week!  I have not had time to play along with many challenges lately, so I hope with colder weather coming and shorter days, I will find more time to play with some of the awesome challenges out there.  

Any one that knows me, knows that I love to make Halloween cards.  I think it is a carry over from all those years in First Grade.  I thought I had my pile  completed, but when I saw this sketch  I thought, "What's one more"?  I can always find someone to send it to.

My card is created on a black card base.  The next two layers are cut using the MFT Mod Rectangle dies with Smokey Slate card stock and a piece of striped DSP in my stash.  The circle was created using alcohol inks.  This technique is new to me and the inks are so much fun to play with.  I love how it looks.  I used Amethyst alcohol ink.  I cut the circle using SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circle dies.  A strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock from Stampin' Up! was used for my rectangle shape.  The sentiment is stamped in black Memento ink using the MFT Witch Way Is the Candy? stamp set.  The little ghost is from Waltzing Mouse stamps.  The company is no longer in business, but I love this set and will not get rid of it.  I colored the image with Copic Markers.  Wink of Stella and white gel pen was used and  I added Glossy Accents to the star and buckle for shine.  A few black enamel dots were added for fun.  

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! 
I hope you have a great weekend!  



  1. Well this little guy is adorable! Fabulous colors and I love the rounded corners! You made my sketch look fabulous! Glad you joined us at FMS!

  2. I agree with Linda - super cute! I think I need to end you a Halloween card Claire - I make them for my challenges, but never send as many as I make as it's really not the done thing here. Love this one!

  3. This is such a cute little ghost! I love the bright colors. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  4. This little ghost is just adorable! What a fun card this is. Sorry for the bad day on the court but this surely made up for it!! So glad you joined us this week at FMS!
