Truly scrumptious: 'trick or treat'

Even though we don't really celebrate Halloween I just couldn't resist these CC Design cuties (available at Silly Monkeys now) and made this card using the sketch/challenge over on truly scrumptious, the 'extra' being to use minimum of 3 stamps. I've used 'clown trevor', 'cow emma' and the 'bench' and have stamped them using masking technique.
Think the MME bloom & grow papers work well for Autumn/Halloween cards as it has that fab orange colour in it. AND if you didn't fancy a full pack you can now get little 'part packs' over at Silly Monkeys for a £1!! perfect if you just wanted to try them or only wanted it for the odd card.
Right must dash, have work tonight . . will fill in the stash bit later.

  • Stamps: Images & sentiments all CC Designs, Sugarplum range from Silly Monkeys
  • Colouring: Copics with bit of stardust pen over the pumpkins for sparkle
  • Paper: MME bloom & Grow 6x6 pack, brown cardstock from Dovecraft textured cardstock
  • Tools: Oval Petite scallop nesties, MS fence border punch, bat punch, Cuttlebug die for the sentiment
  • Others: ric rac ribbon, 'olive' flatbacked pearls

    If you're looking for the candy winner to my mini WOJ candy its under this post.

    First I wondered why Trevor has a sad face - didn't he get any treats? Then I noticed it is the carryhandle for the pumpkin :D A bit unfortunate placement there, me thinks ;)
