A Happy Scenes Halloween Card

Today my sister dropped of some stuff for me and this was something that was in the bag!!!  It's the "Happy Scenes" set from the new Occasions catalog!!!  I thought it would be a great set to play with because it covers fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and winter!  All that in one set!!! So I'm sure you can see my wheels turning with this set!  I have LOTS of plans for it!!  Ideas were popping all afternoon.  The first card I wanted to make was a fall card but it ended up being a Halloween card.  Which is fine because I like Halloween too!  I didn't have any current Halloween decorative paper so I used the standard pads and went from there.

I used the striped Pumpkin Pie paper for my first colored panel.  Then some dotted Old Olive.  On top of that is my stamped image and I set it place using Dimensionals.  

To color in my image I used markers and sponges!! First I colored in the leaves and pumpkins with the Pumpkin Pie marker.   Then I sponged the ground with Old Olive.  I sponged the sky with Soft Sky and then I added a little Smoky Slate to the sky.  I sponged in circles to give the sky the look of a windy day.  I sponged the sky edges of the panel with Soft Sky and the ground edges were sponged with Old Olive. I layered each panel with Early Espresso.

On the Whisper White piece I stamped the words, which came with the set!!!  I had a lot of fun creating this card today!!

Thank you SO much for visiting,
