Have a bewitching Halloween!

Hi all and happy Thursday! Today, I have a sweet treat for you -- because the Impression Obsession Design Team is ushering in a little Halloween Challenge to get you in the mood for the 'night of fright!'! All you need to do is grab your IO stamps and have some Halloween fun! Want more info on the challenge? Just head on over to the IO Blog HERE for more!

On to my creation! For starters, I have to say that my layout this week was influenced by this week's Mojo Monday! You can check out the fabulous sketch HERE. 

I just love the little kitty and pumpkin that I used for my main image! It's called Cat in the Jack and is one of those cute images by Gary Robertson! I love the name too!  I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored it up with Copic Markers and used these markers - YR09, YR04, YR01, C00, C03, C05, Y38. I also shaded around the one side of the pumpkin with those grey shades as well. And... one of the  funnest things? I added glitter to the inside of the pumpkin to make it sparkle and shine! See?

I also added a couple little extras - I don't know if you can see it but in real life - but I used Orange Vivid ink and stamped the Cover-A-Card Thick Chevron as a background on the orange piece of paper.  I used on the bottom. 

I also used the sentiment called Boo Eyes. on the little shape above my pumpkin and added some white gel pen and sparkle to the "O"s. Fun stuff! Mat it all up using a mix of decorative paper (Bo Bunny, The Paper Studio and Crate Paper), a little zig-zag stitching, a few different ribbons and a little bit of bling and.... done! 

Here's a close up of the fun sentiment!  

And that, my friends, is it! Want to see what the rest of the Impression Obsession gals did to serve up some bewitching creativity? Just head on over and see.......
