Halloween Costume Bear

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 290 - Lace Sponging provided by Joan. Whey I sure am glad that border punching was an alternative as I have no lace I am willing to get ink all over. So I punched my new MS large lacey border and sponged some Dew Drop Mango on Peach Parfait, topped that off with some clear embossing powder and heat set it.
I also used last Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 297. My color combo is from last Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 287 - Concord Parfait Pizzazz. Thanks to these colors I am almost finished with this years Halloween stack. I am still using Recollections Halloween dp and I hope you are not tired of seeing it bc I love it. Have I mentioned that yet? Well I do!
I stamped this darling witchy bear in tuxedo black then colored with copics and topped the stars off with some stickles. Then I cut and embossed the focal panel and matt using Nesties Label 1. I sponged some tea dye antinque distressing ink around the focal image while still in the Nestie. Love the antique look it gives. Hope you do too. Now off to work.
