Trick or Treat--FMS 255

September 25, 2016

I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.  I had several ideas for this fantastic sketch, but I need a few Halloween cards for my stash, so I went with my first thought.

I love Halloween!  Maybe it is because I spent so many years teaching Elementary School.  It is such a fun day for children.  Dressing up, pretending to be someone else and trick or treating!  What's not to like?

Theses adorable penguins are off for a night of fun.  Looks like their favorite  treat is goldfish.  My grands love those, too!  This set is from Your Next Stamp-Waddles-Trick or Treat.  I colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out with the matching dies.  I distressed the white panel with Hickory Smoke Distress ink after I cut it out using the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies.  Some bats and stars were heat embossed in the night sky.  A black enamel dot was added on the orange panel.  The sentiment is stamped in black Versa Fine ink.  Wink of Stella was added for shine.  The one little penguin is trying to catch up with his buddies!  Hope they get lots of treats.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
