Inkspirational Designer Challenge - Nonni's Choice

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian friends!  It's time for turkey and pie and family time!  We are having our turkey dinner on Sunday.  Yum!  Can't wait.

Anyway, it's time for another challenge over at Inkspirational!  This time our lovely teammate, Nonni, had the honor of picking what the challenge would be.  She chose "Use 5 Stamps (or more)".

Well, I had a fun time figuring out what stamps to use for my card.  I decided to do a Halloween theme since that fun holiday is coming up.  Here's my card....

I masked of my area and sponged on black ink along the bottom. I stamped my haunted house (Michaels: Craft Smart) in black and then created a mask for it and covered it up. Next, I sponged some orange from the top down and went over lightly the black again. I stamped my branches (Inkadinkado) next then my fox (Fiskars).  I removed all the masks and then stamped the sentiment (Michaels: Craft Smart).  I stamped the spider (Inkadinkado) and made it look like it was hanging by a web thread with a black marker.  I added a bit of yellow to my house windows with a marker as well.  I quite like how this card turned out.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Please, make sure to go and check out what the rest of the team made as well as our wonderful Guest Designer.  There are some wonderful cards to look at!

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by!
