Bloggers Challenge and Alpha Stamps!

My favorite challenge at Bloggers Challenge are sketch challenges and Lisa came up with a great one, as always!  All stamps are Alpha Stamps and will be entered in their Halloween Giveaway Challenge.

Mr. Holtz branches were inked with Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Dusty Concord and then clear embossed.  The Skeleton was stamped with Black Archival and then distressed with the same colors and a spray of Glimmer Mist Pearl.  Since I did not add a flourish, I embossed the background with spiders and did a little highlighting.

Ok, I better get this posted and think about making some dinner!!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
