Join the Owl and the Pussy-cat and Wolfie too on a Ghoulvember Adventure


What’s Ghoulvember?  It’s when all those Halloween projects that didn’t get finished before the end of Spooktober come out to play.  And my first one features three very cute little spooks from the Jude and the Little Rockers collection at Simply B Stamps; meet Wolfie Ariel and Who You Lookin' At Brittany.  And from the Teen Scene Trick or Treat collection, we have Meowie London.


Day 13 of the 13 Days of Halloween at Simply B Stamps called for merging your ghouls and making them black and white and one other colour, as you can see I picked orange for my other colour.  Not only did I merge my cute little ghouls but I also used the cauldron from the Cacklin' London image to give them something to be huddled around and flipped Meowie London to help them look more like a naturally grouped trio.

I followed the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to make my card using the debossed border pattern from a sheet of DCWV Witches’ Brew paper as one of my elements and some gems to add some bling for the other lines.  My background paper is an off-white but harsh white wasn’t going to suit the image, I’m hoping it looks like eerie moonlight, perfect atmosphere for a coven of cuties to meet in.  To add some interest to the background, I cut my Nestie out and framed the embossed clock on a piece of Core’dinations cardstock (this can't be seen in the pic but there's a clock shape around Brittany's head).

Although there’s some white in this it is also predominately black and orange so I’m also linking my card up at the current Digi Haven challenge.
