Bloggers Challenge 173

This week's Bloggers Challenge is Black and White with a dash of orange. I decided to use the sketch challenge from Critters Sketch Challenge for the design. The color them and sketch was perfect to create this Halloween card. The background was embossed using one of Tim Holtz's Halloween folders and the ribbons across are actually pieces of ribbon tape from the TH line. All of the stamps are from the Artistic Outpost sheet Haunted Halloween. The haunted house was stamped using the Copic Expressions technique from Technique Junkies (Jun/Jul 2010). I think the water color look to the image gives it that eerie look.
