A Sketch Challenge, a Digi, and a Spooky Background!

By | 10/22/2022

I had so much fun creating my card project for today.

I had trouble falling asleep last night and decided to watch some Copic coloring videos from My Creative Scoop.  I joined the Coloring Club when Mindy was offering a deal that included access to all of her previous Copic coloring classes.  I LOVE her classes and splurged.

That was another night I couldn’t fall asleep…sigh!

I created this card to play along with the Saturday Challenge at Three Room Studio.  This week we have a sketch challenge with a choice of two sketches!

I chose sketch A.  I pulled out some old Catherine Pooler Halloween paper and created my background.


Card Base: 5-1/4 x 8-1/2″, score and fold at 4-1/4″

Black mat: 4 x 5-1/4″

Catherine Pooler Bat Paper: 2-3/4 x 5″

Catherine Pooler Ghost Paper: 1 x 5″


I also used a white piece of card stock cut at 3 x 4-1/4″ to create my little spooky scene.  I watched a fall background class from My Creative Scoop last night and I modified the technique a bit.

I used some distress oxides: Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Hickory Smoke, and Dusty Concord.  These were blended together in a similar fashion to how Mindy added her Copics. She used a pretty yellow and orange blend.  I did mine in yellow and purple.

I added the tree with my black Copic in a similar manner to what I watched Mindy do on the video last night.  I love how easy that tree was to create!

See the details here:


The mummy is a digital stamp called “Halloween for Mummies” from Three Room Studio. It is part of a cute digi set.

I added my “Boo” sentiment with some old alphabet stickers from my stash…and I mean old!! At least 20 years!

I love this sketch.  I think the washi detail and the angled top panel with the Halloween scene is so much fun.

I added some staples which is a detail inspired by Tenia Nelson!

I think the papers added a fun touch to the scene card.  I don’t usually add patterned papers to cards with scenes.  I like this sketch so much that it will be one of my favorite go-to sketches now!

My card was really inspired by a lot of people today!

I hope you enjoy it and check out some of my creative friends as well!

Happy weekend!
