Jacksonbelle Sketch and Contest

I can't believe it is already week 3 of the Jacksonbelle Embellishments Contest! Please read the contest info here: Contest Rules and Info. You don't have to do much to qualify - just make a card following any of the sketches and email it to Lynda. There are GREAT prizes!

Sketch #3.
If you upload to Splitcoast please use JBE020 so we can find it! We'd love to see what you make!
Here's what I made!

Spooky, isn't it?! I used Inkadinkado Halloween Trails stamp set and Imaginisce paper, Hallowhimsy - Eeks & Shrieks and Lollipop Lizzy. I think the paper is so stinkin cute! I cut the word "Spooky" off of the Eeks & Shrieks, it is even embossed a bit, so the letters are a bit 3D and shiny, and that made it easier to cut! I stamped the spiders from Halloween Trails on the background of the card with Black ink, then I used a glitter pen and highlighted some of the spiders and the web, it gave it sort of a spooky sparkle. For the main image, I stamped Versamark on glossy white cardstock, then I sponged it with black ink - I guess you'd call this Versamark resist. I hardly ever do techniques - so I never remember the names. I thought it sort of made the image a bit more foggy and spooky! After I inked it with black and rubbed it all in, I used a yellow Prismacolor Alcohol Marker to color the moon. I left the card quite simple with layers because I felt that the glitter and technique were quite enough.
