Stamper's Anonymous Halloween 2020 - An Uninvited Guest at Sketch Manor

I'm back again, to bring you my second make for Tim Holtz's Stamper's Anonymous Halloween 2020 big stamp release. This one is all about Sketch Manor, and was one of my favorite cards in the series. And, I just want to say a mahoosive thank you for all the comments, pins, follows, and likes...I'm so thankful!
Cut black cardstock to 4 3/8 x 6 1/8. Stamp clouds along top using Hickory Smoke Oxide and heat emboss with clear powder. Stamp lightning bolts under each cloud using Picket Fence Distress and heat emboss with clear powder. I totally love the lightning bolts, and think they would make fabulous branches too.
 Use white pen to color in lightning bolts. Apply Hickory Smoke Oxide to silicone mat and water color in clouds using Detail Water Brush. Distress edges and mount on kraft card base 4 1/2 x 6 1/4. Set aside.
Die cut Big Ticket from Sizzix (an oldie but a goodie!) on heavystock. Stamp moon in Hickory Smoke Oxide and heat emboss with clear powder.
Ink over the whole ticket with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Ink over ticket in Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, minus the moon and area directly around moon. Spritz and flick water over ticket to create watermarks.  Let dry.
Stamp haunted house and tree on ticket using stamp platform and Jet Black Archival, and heat emboss with clear powder. Mask tree and house side, and stamp fence along bottom left of ticket using Jet Black. Stamp bats in sky, and stamp a bit of the tree branches above house on right side.
Stamp ticket number in top right portion of the tag using Letter/Number Rotary Stamper.
Apply Hickory Smoke, Picket Fence, Antique Linen, and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks to silicone mat and water color in the stamped images with Detail Water Brush. Trace over recessed ticket trim areas that are not covered up by stamps with a white pen. Ink edges of ticket with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Mount on kraft cardstock, and trim around to 1/8 inch around ticket. Distress edges with Distress Tool, and ink those with Gathered Twigs. Apply mat board or foam tape to back of ticket, and mount on lightning base.
Cut around witch if need be, ink around it, and collage onto ticket. Heat emboss sentiment onto black cardstock using Picket Fence and clear powder. Cut around, and mount onto kraft. Distress edges and ink, and add to card top.

  1. OMGoodness, the Sketch Manor is quite the scene builder stamp set...I agree, the lightning bolts make good the card...the small Paper Doll Witch is just the right touch...

  2. Thoroughly, head-turningly awesome creation! Love (!) the lightning bolt filled backdrop.
