Spooktacular Halloween

Hello my inky friends! Today at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe board, by me! I hope you enjoy it and play along, too. Though I could have gone a few different directions, I'll say I went across the middle: Black, Halloween and Cat. Of course I had to chose the kitty! 

So here you have my creation, a little out of the norm for me. I usually gravitate to plenty of white space, but in this case I wanted a lot of rich, deep color. I must say I had great fun making this card and coloring all the images. All the stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn.

So many challenges, so little time! I was inspired to use the sketch at Sunday Stamps. The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Monster Mash. The Lawnscaping Challenge this week is Too Cute to Spook. Finally is the 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Spooktacular (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Island Indigo, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Tangelo Twist (SU)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Spooktacular Dies, Stitched Hillside Border Dies, Forest Border Dies (Lawn Fawn)

Before I sign off, I had to share a picture of Ollie in his Halloween costume. He's a dinosaur this year, though not too pleased about it! Sorry it's a little fuzzy. Hard to get the little guy to hold still. I'll try to get a better picture for you soon.

Thanks for stopping by and please visit the rest of the Design Team at Stamp, Ink, Paper!

Okay, I think the kitty might be star of the show. The hills and the black hill with the trees is awesome. What a great idea. I love what you created here! Thank you for playing along with Lawnscapings Challenges. - Roxanne
