Trick or Treat

Hi Lawnscapers, Roxanne here! I'm excited that this is my first official blog post for Lawnscaping as part of the Facebook Inspiration Team.

I made this adorable Halloween card. I love to have some on hand to give to teachers, my kids, or anyone who loves the holiday as much as I do. This year, I even think I'll decorate earlier. ;)

For this card, I used the Lawn Fawn, Critters in Costume set for the main focus. I recently adopted a dog, so I went for the dog in a bee costume. He's just too cute! I stamped him with Memento  in Tuxedo Black and colored him in with Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut him out leaving a slight outline around him. You'll notice I cut between his front paws so I could sneak him behind the borders I cut for the card layout to give more depth. For the trick or treat bag, I just stamped in Tuxedo Black onto kraft paper and fussy cut around that as well. I snuck it behind the doggy.

For the background, I took a honeycomb stencil and used Versamagic ink in Tattered Straw and sponged it on varying the pressure so it's slightly lighter in the middle. I chose to use watercolor paper for this because I love the texture of it. I then spritzed on some spray mist over the honeycomb and dabbed it off with a paper towel.

I cut strips of patterned paper for the doggy and his trick or treat bag to nestle into. I popped up the center piece with some foam adhesive so I could do that.

I hope you enjoyed my project for this month! Just remember, Halloween is only 65 days away...
