We have another fab new sketch for you over at Sketch Saturday today, and as it's the final Saturday in the month, our sponsor is the fabulous The Craft Barn.
Jo also set the DT the challenge of making our creations 'Halloween', as of course it's the 31st of October today - All Hallows Eve - so I decided to use my new Stamping Bella stamp 'Witchybella' as she fitted perfectly into this sketch (once I'd turned it 90 degress to the right).
A bat punch would have been perfect, but as I don't have one I used a bat graphic I found on the internet and used Microsoft Word to resize it. I also downloaded this fab spooky font to make my "trick or treat" sentiment.
I went a bit overboard on the embellies on this card ... lace rafia, 3 colours of organza ribbons, gems plus my 'must-have' pearls! However, I was rather pleased with myself for coming up with the idea of threading some purple organza ribbon through the black rafia, as I think it creates a great effect!
