Deadly Poison

Trick or Treating is only 2 days away so today's card is all about Halloween. It is also my card for this week's sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Hauntings stamp set. Handmade Halloween card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
In order to get both bottles to fit on the circle, I had to do some masking first. Then I added a bit of color with an aqua painter and ink. I went with traditional orange (Tangelo Twist) and Black for my card's color scheme so everything came together pretty quickly. Note: I did stamp the tag with white ink and embossed it with white as well.

Once I had my background stamped and the sketch elements in place I added a sprinkling of rhinestones for added effect - or is it added affect? I can never keep those two words straight!

Supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Sweet Hauntings, Gorgeous Grunge
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Tangelo Twist
Ink: Basic Black, Tangelo Twist, Whisper White
Other: White Embossing Powder, Note tag Punch, rhinestones, Spider Web doily, 2 1/2" circle punch, aqua painter

I agree too - love the colouring on the bottles, it really makes them stand out. For a monochromatic card with one feature colour there is so much interest and dimension - happy haunting indeed!
