Happy Halloween ~ Sketch Saturday

Sketch Saturdays - Page 129 

Happy Halloween!

Hope your day is Spooktacular!


We are in full Halloween mode here at my home. We are decorated to the max, complete with spider webs all over our bushes and front entrance. Pumpkins have been gutted and cut and decorated and all manner of frightening things are adorning the walls of our home. The treats have been bought and are being guarded from sneaky little fingers and our Halloween costumes are all laid out! Yes, I dress up too!  I am the one who takes the kids out while hubby mans the fort giving out the treats. I have one son going as a sailor and the other two are Power Rangers. One is red the other is blue. Apparently there is a huge difference in powers and capabilities but my brain cannot retain all these fine nuances! I have a huge witches hat, cape, wig and gloves with long silver talons! I am much more frightening than little Tilda here!

My card for this week’s Sketch Saturday just had to have a Halloween Theme! I wanted to ink this cute stamp another time more before she is stored away!

Our sponsor this week is:

I wanted to use this Magnolia background stamp as a creepy, scary moon. I stamped it, airbrushed it and added stickles and liquid appliqué. Tilda was colored with my copic markers.
