Make it Crafty - Vintage Fun with a Sketch Challenge!

Hi there - I hope you had fun joining us the past 2 weeks for our Distressing Challenge - I had so much fun looking at all your projects. Distressing really is one of my favorite things to do to my cards. It looks like I'm not alone in that! So, for our 2nd Make it Crafty fun challenge, Zoe came up with a REALLY amazing sketch!!!
Isn't it great?! I just love all the fun elements she added. I have a hard time making super layered cards so this sketch was the perfect jumping off point for me! Have some fun with it - add your own vintage spin to it and I look forward to seeing all your amazing projects.

For my card, I used the Eerie Scene Digi stamp available at Zoe's Store - she & the rest of the DT girls have totally got me hooked on these little scene images. I just adore them! Even though I'm still a little intimidated when I get started. hehe I wanted to cut out the image to layer on top of the sketch so instead of cutting out the moon in the image (ok, to be completely honest, there was NO way I was coloring that.) I just cut out a circle with my nesties, ran it thru my cuttlebug for some fun texture & sanded it. I love the way it turned out & b/c I loved the bats from the image so much, I just cut those out and placed them around.

Be sure to check the Make it Crafty Challenge blog for the rest of the DT projects - they definately blow me away each week - I'm in awe to be with this group of talented ladies!

What a stunning scene you have created!! Your colouring on the little skeleton boy is marvelous and Zoe is right, that textured moon is simply amazing!

Fabulous card Carisa! Love the texture of the card with the distressing and sponging you've done. Those pumpkins and the little boy are coloured so beautifully and they look like they were made for the scene you've created with that gorgeous moon. Hugs, Maria
