Sketchin' it out with Halloween

More Halloween goodness up tonight....or this morning.  I picked out the sketch from today on the I heart 2 Stamp blog for this card.  Whenever you run low on mojo, go for the sketches.  There are so many wonderful sketch artists out there.  I picked up the Honey Bear from my Inkadinkado stamps.  Isn't he a cutie?  I worked on more shading techniques for the Copic Challenge #35 going through September 30th .

For the background squares, I used Fiskar embossing folders to dry emboss spider webs.  The spider web at the bottom is a Tim Holtz mask rubbed over with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I wanted to create a white border around my stamped image and am usually unsuccessful at keeping the embossed edge of my nestabilites clean when I try to free hand it with my Copic markers.  So tonight, I decided to keep the image nested inside my die and color my shaded background.   After completing all the shading work, I popped out the image and had my white border.
