October Card Sketch

Friday, October 04, 2013

Hello dearies!

Happy October!  I will be saying this for weeks, but fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I love Halloween (which I don't even know why because me and hubby never dress up) and I love everything about fall.  This will be my first year designing for Practical Scrappers around the holidays and I am mega super excited!  From this week forward, all of the projects I share for Practical Scrappers will be holiday or season-themed!  Yeah!  I'm so excited to create lots of great projects.  Okay, now onto our card sketch for this month.

Here is our October sketch, created by the fabulous Patty.  I really love the messiness of this sketch and you really can interpret it in any way!  Our challenge is to create a fall or Halloween-themed card.  Because I have been literally dying to pull out my jar of googly eyes, I created a Halloween card.

Products used: cardstock, patterned paper (purple and Monsters): K&Company, ribbon and tree embellie: K&Company, brads (bats and circles): Making Memories; other: paint, googly eyes
I loved the split canvas from the sketch, so I turned that onto it's side and added purple to the bottom half of my card.  The top was too black for me, so I painted it with white watercolor paint, then added some splotches.  The little monsters in the K&Company line are too die for.  The collection is from a few years ago, but I still use every single piece I can.  (My goal this fall/Halloween is to totally clean out my stash with projects so I can buy some new product next season).  I finished the card off by applying lots of layers: the monsters, ribbon, the tree embellie, and brads.  Ta da!!

Give the card sketch a try and make sure to share it on the Practical Scrappers Facebook page!
