Double Trouble Challenge #149 "Scrapper's Trick and Treat"

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble Challenge #149 "Scrapper's Trick & Treat". The Trick was creating a technique background... my Trick was brush ink blending over a tree stencil and then coloring the tree in black... and my Treat is an awesome background.  The stencil was also a Treat... I was one lucky winner randomly picked at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #19 "Stars" and received a store credit to A Colorful Life Designs and this stencil was one of my picks! 

The slimline stenciled background was cut and bordered with black cardstock. A purple wacky frame was also cut and bordered with black cardstock... and all layers were adhered to card base.   

Twisted Sister wants us to dress up our background using Halloween images (cute or spooky) and join a Halloween Party at one of these parks... either at Disney's sweet "Not so Scary" or Universal Studios spooky "Horror Night".  I chose to do a combination of sweet and spooky so I could attend both   

Found in my stash a cute pup dressed up as a mummy and on the left-hand bottom corner of the card base adhered with 3-D thin foam tape. Cut a couple Boo sentiments with purple and white cardstock, layered and glued to stenciled background among the branches. From the same Paper Smooches die set "Halloween Icons" instead of using the Explanation point I substituted with a small ghost.  Also cut a spooky but cute spider, adhered to the bottom r-h corner and hand-drew a spider web from the branch.  

On the inside of the card, r-h border, adhered half a web-like doily from my stash.  

Please hop on over to Double Trouble  and check out the Design Teams inspiration and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.

Also, if you have met Thing 1's requirement to create your own background and have dressed up your background with Halloween images, you are eligible to enter your project HERE at Park Hopping, My Happy Place Challenge.  Let them know what party you will be attending Disney "Not So Scary" or Universal "Halloween Horror Night".

I think that turned out so cute (especially that little ghost on the exclamation mark!)

So adorable, love that little mummy dog, lol. Beautiful blended background, too - I so love the spooky silhouette dies! Thanks so much for playing at Make My Monday AND Retro Rubber!

πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ Your mummy doggie somehow reminds me of Doggie Daddy from Hannah Barbera; I think it's the shape of the dog's head. πŸ•πŸ’™ Thank you for sharing with us & partnering with us at Park Hopping My Happy Place! Have a great weekend! (ok, it's only Wednesday night, but we are more than halfway there 😁) Cheers, MakiraπŸŽ’πŸŽ¨πŸ’Œ

Sue this is so cute! The ink blended background is perfect and that mummy dog is so cute!! As much as I hate spiders, it's cute dangling from the tree like that! Love the web on the inside too :)
