IB192 Who's Your Boo?

Hey there!  Happy you popped it today!  It's time for a new Inspired By challenge, and look at these cuties:


And here's our optional sketch; you can use it with a prompt or all by itself!

I was really, really tempted to make a Christmas card for today but I am still needing Halloween cards so I decided to challenge myself to make one with these unusual colors, (at least for Halloween), and with the sketch:

First, I made a stencil by diecutting a rectangle opening in a sheet of acetate; I used a Stitched Rectangle die, which puts "stitching" on both the inside and outside of the die, so I actually got a wee bit of stenciling through the stitched lines, LOL!  After filling in the stencil with Blushing Bride, Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake inks, I pulled out an old Halloween set called Spooky Bingo Bits and stamped three images on some scrap white and fussy-cut them out to layer on top of the stenciled areas. I gave each of them a little color with some Blends, too.  The stenciled areas looked a little plain, so I pulled out a retired Paper Pumpkin set and added some background images:

The big sentiment at the bottom was also from a Paper Pumpkin set, and to jazz it up a little, I added some sequins.  The inside sentiments are from Paper Pumpkin, Little Delights and Banner Year:

Definitely not your typical Halloween card but I love it!  Scary, but not TOO scary!  I hope you'll be inspired by our two prompts this's always a blast seeing how everyone interprets them!  Share them with us over at Inspired By and you might be chose as a winner! 

On my morning walk recently, I took a couple pictures of these wild morning amazes me that they are so hardy, they'll grow right in among the rocks!  They also grow in the corn fields...not such a good thing for the farmer!

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!
