It's time again for the friday mashup. And it's my favorite Halloween. I love Halloween. I don't think there is a more fun time for kids and grown ups. So anyways challenge 27 is Boo.. They're mashing up a Halloween theme with some great spooky colors. Black, concord Crush,Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade.
I actually had this card already made. My card club is getting together this Wednesday and this is one of the cards I decided we'd make. I used Daffodil Delight instead of the Lucky Limeade. It was easy enough to change up. The supplies I've used:
Stamp sets: Dark & dreary --Wicked cool -- I have no idea where the stamp came from that I used to make the broken branch.
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie and Black
Inks: Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip daffodil Delight and black StazOn
Martha Steward Bat punch

I stamped my owl, bats and the broken branch on glossy card stock in black stazOn ink. I punched a large circle out of a scrap of card stocked and used the scrap  to mask off the sky and sponged Daffodil Delight in the circle to create the moon. after that I removed the scrap and covered the moon with the scrap circle I had punched out. I sponged the sky with Concord Crush.  I removed the scrap circle and colored in the broken branch with chocolate chip ink. Then I sponged the whole piece with Pumpkin Pie to give it that spooky harvest moon look. I then matted it with Lucky Limeade and matted it again with Pumpkin Pie, Tearing and edging the bottom. I added a green button that matched pretty good and a piece of black polka dot grosgrain ribbon. I punched out a bat and added it in the upper corner so it looks like the bats are flying right out of the card. and used dimensionals to pop up the bat and the word spooky.
Well that"s my card. I hope you like it. HAVE A SPOOKY HALLOWEEN.............BOO
