Outlines Rubber Stamps Challenge - Halloween

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a card for Halloween.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!

Happy Haunting

Isn't this an amazing image?!?  It's completely impossible to pick a favorite Halloween image, but this one ranks up there.  I inked my Sparkle Happy Haunting (H 907) image with Black Soot Distress ink and embossed with clear powder.  I colored with Copic markers and gave the background a few blasts with my airbrush.  I love the yellow glow behind the letters.  I kept my coloring fairly simple, but you could easily go wild, coloring all the different spaces of the letters separate colors.

Of course, the Sparkle Happy Haunting image is made for added bling.  I put a few Swarovski crystals on the witches hat and filled the dots with Holo Iridescent Glitter Liner.  It's a shimmery delight!
I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  And don't forget you can join in our fun!
