Halloween - Magic in This Night Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

 Those of you who follow me will know that I regularly show you projects that are challenges.  Sometimes it's colours, sometimes a particular product and sometimes it's a sketch.  I do lots of challenges with two of my crafty friends - Taffycrafting (Donna Lester) and Vickieloudesigns (Victoria Littlewood) and we have a regular weekly one called Share it on a Sunday. Well, now Donna has challenged us to do some sketch challenges over the next few weeks to keep our creative mojo going and I'm going to use them as a chance to show you new products as well as some old favourites that I haven't used for a while.  So, here goes with my Challenge 29 of #33, I hope that you like it.


1 piece of thick whisper white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of magic in this night dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Scraps of whisper white for stamping
Festive Post stamp set
Memento black ink
Rectangle Stamp Punch
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone Folder


On the long side, score the thick whisper white card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the landscape card base.

Adhere the dsp layer to the card front leaving a border all around.

Stamp the images on the scraps of whisper white using the Festive Post stamp set in black ink and then punch out with the Rectangle Stamp punch.  Stamp some bats on the  inside of the card using black ink.

Arrange the stamps on the front of the card leaving equal borders all around them.

Another simple sketch challenge that will look completely different depending on the stamp sets and dsp that you use, give it a try, its fun.
