Hi again!  My room and desk got a well-deserved cleaning today.  Under the piles of stuff, I found this little trick or treating trio I had put together last week. 

These little Bugaboo Brats are just too cute!  I merged them in Word with the Furniture Background Halloween Step.  This is quite a large image, so I knew a square layout would work best.  The sketch for Sketch Saturday this week worked perfectly. 

After coloring the image with Copics, I cut it out with a square Nestie.  I cut another piece of Chocolate Chip a touch larger and punched the edge with my Martha Stewart Cornice punch.  The designer paper is from the Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holidays stack — it only took me two years to start using this! LOL!  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do at the top of the image to keep to the sketch.  I tried buttons, but was feeling lazy and didn’t want to thread them.  So I pulled out some Dew Drops that were collecting dust and created a nice line of them at the top.  I did vary a bit on the sketch by placing the sentiment at the bottom — it is a handwritten sentiment.  Some orange rhinestones finished it off nicely.
