For this one, I started out with something completely different, in mind. Then, I was inspired by a color combo I saw on Pintrest, my latest creative obsession. Love that site!!I paired up bits from three stamp sets for this little guy and even did a little "fussy cutting" which is something I generally hide from. Lol! The witch hat from the Wicked Cool stamp set fits perfectly on the punched owl. I'm sure I'm not the first to try this out, but I was pretty excited when I discovered it.
Although I didn't actually USE the trick-or-treating owl from the Warmest of Wishes (hostess) set, I used his "goodie bag" for my inspiration. I simply used a marker to ink up the jack-o'- lantern face on the stamp and hand-cut a little treat bag. I added a piece of silver elastic cord for the handle. Although, as I type this, I kind of wonder how this hooter is going to haul his "loot" as he doesn't have hands or wings...hmmmm...maybe he will carry it in his beak? GAH...Why am I even thinking about that? Haha!
I sponged around the image, the owl and the sentiment with some Basic Black Classic ink for an eerie-vibe. Every layer is popped up, too. It's hard to see in photos but it is actually a fairly bulky card.
Finally, here is the inside of the card, using the (ret.) Trick or Treat set...I couldn't think of a better sentiment to use with this little dude:
