Happy Halloween...

Good morning!

I've got a clean and simple Halloween card to share today using a mix of stamps from Purple Onion Designs. I started off by grabbing the Happy Pumpkins stamp and then found Lilly, this happy dancing owl, and I immediately thought it would be cute if she was dancing right on those pumpkins. To make that happen, I stamped Lilly first, masked her off and then stamped the Happy Pumpkins below. Next, I added a mask to the pumpkins and stamped the Birch Trees Background behind them to help fill in the scene. Once the masks were removed it was time to color and I started with a soft, dusky hued violet sky that ended up looking really pretty with the rest of the rather de-saturated colors that I used throughout the scene. The sentiment is part of the Essential Happy Sentiment set and I ended up sprinkling a few green gems around it as a magical finishing touch.  :)

Later gators!
