Bellariffic Friday - Stripes

Finally Friday and not a moment too soon!  This week's theme for Bellariffic Friday was "stripes" and seeing as it's Halloween in a few days I squeaked in one last Halloween card.  I think my most favourite technique is brayering and after choosing the owls as my image, I knew exactly how I'd make this card.  Am I allowed to say, I just LOVE how this turned out?! :)

I started with a piece of SU glossy paper and brayered some SU Delightful Daffodil across it.  Then I made a mask of the moon with my circle punch.  I brayered another layer of Delightful Daffodil then a couple more layers of SU More Mustard.  That's when the "happy mistake" happened!  Apparently my mask had moved and I was left with a slight moon shadow.  I couldn't have planned that better :)  I sponged some SU Pumpkin Pie around the top edge and the moon.  Then I stamped Branching Out Owlies in black StazOn and coloured in the branch with a black sharpie.  The striped paper is from my Apothecary Emporium pad by Echo Park.  I used a scallop border die and added some black rhinestones to it.  The BOO sentiment flag seemed a bit bare, so I added a black button from my stash and then tied a little bow with striped black twine.  Have a great weekend and a Happy Halloween!
