Spooky Sketchy Cracked Glass!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC248, and for this week's There She Goes Challenge, TSG22, Spooky Cracked Glass!

For my card, I went with a color combination of Black/White/Pumpkin Pie. I started with two rectangles of Choice Snow White Cardstock and I stamped the witch and bats one one panel, and the sentiment, "Have A Spooktacular Halloween" and some bats on the other. All of these stamps are from the newly released Spooktacular Silhouettes from There She Goes! This set is SO much fun to use!!

After I had my two panels stamped, I inked up my brayer (that's how I roll these days!) with my Desert Heat Kaleidacolor Ink Pad and rolled on the color. I then, using Versamark, gave each panel three coats of Utee (Ultra Think Embossing Enamel), popped them in the freezer for about 10 minutes, and once they were nice and chilly, cracked them! I added just a touch of Basic Black ink into the cracks. SUCH a fun technique and I LOVE how it turned out with these stamps!!

My Pumpkin Pie panel was run through the Cuttlebug with the Spiderweb Embossing Folder and then sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink to bring out the pattern. My Black center panel was punched with the Bat Border Punch from EK Success, matted on White and then also run through the Cuttlebug with the Spiderweb Embossing Folder.

I finished my card with one little lonely row of piercing, a double ribbon of Whisper White Organdy and Pumpkin Twill, as well as two White Brads by American Crafts.
