Now for my card, I have to admit that from the first time I saw the stamp set, I had this kind of sketch in mind. No idea where it comes from, but it just felt so right, like I was seeing it in my mind. I started by sketching a circle with one of my dies and a pencil. Then, I stamped several ghosts (from both sizes) in Memento ink and a few masks, before colouring them with my Copic markers. Now, if I had to do it again, I would definitely wait on stamping the masks AFTER the colouring, to make sure the ink wouldn't "fade" out when in contact with the alcohol ink contained in the markers. Any how! After this step, I cut the circle, and placed it on my cardbase that had previously been die-cut too with a Double stitched circles set from La-La Land Crafts, keeping only the negative part (and yes, this month is all about negative die-cutting, lol!). The next step was to emboss with Versamark ink and Wow! Super fine white powder the Trick or Treat sentiment from the stamp set, and to fussy cut a coloured owl. Voilà!
Here's the set:
