Crafty Secret's DT Challenge.....Halloween!

Good morning and happy Monday to you!! Today is our Crafty Secret's DT challenge for September! Vicki challenged us to make anything Halloween themed! I decided on the Halloween Treats stamp set. I just adore this cute little owl and colored him with my Copics. I cut him out and added a foam dimensional dot behind him. The tree was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I punched a circle from a piece of scrap paper and used the negative space to sponge a white "moon" directly onto the DP. I adhered the owl right over it, so that he is sitting on the branch.
The sentiment was stamped on vellum and adhered with a Halloween brad. A larger piece of vellum was run through my spider web Cuttlebug folder. It was hand stitched with black thread and small brads were added to the corners. I piece of glittery, sheer ribbon was tied for a finishing touch.

Be sure to check out the rest of the team's amazing Halloween projects! : )

Love this! That little owl is darling, and the ribbon just makes the whole card pop. I love it! And it's so hard to get a perfect stamped image on vellum. I'm impressed!

Love this card Michele!! The owl is so darling and the scene you created is fantastic!! The tree turned out beautifully and I love how you created the moon!

I am about an hour and a half east of you (in the country). I live near Sandwich/Somonauk. About 40 min. southwest of DeKalb. And I teach too!! Small world!! Maybe we will connect at next summer's CHA?
