Halloween in Owlville

Morning All! 
Today's card was so much fun to do and it meshed my two current obsessions - Halloween and punch art!  I truly love my owl punch - the possibilities seem absolutely endless when I sit down and start punching with it.  Some of these little guys were made with ideas I'd seen from fellow stampers, like the bat, ballerina, and pirate but Mickey and Minnie, Spiderman, and the dragon were ideas I designed.  I should mention while I think of it that each character is made only with pieces from the owl punch, with the exception of the ballerina's tutu (scallop circle punch) Mickey and Minnie's shoes (3/4" circle punch), and the pumpkin 
(1 1/4" circle punch).  Neat hey??
I will try to be as detailed as I can in describing the materials I used but if I forget something, please accept my apologies now - a lot went into this one!!


Stamp sets: Take care, Wicked Cool, Googly Ghouls
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP, Whisper White, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Primrose Petals, Sahara Sand, Brights Designer Series DSP, Cajun Craze, Subtles Designer Series DSP, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, Brushed Gold, Lucky Limenade, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White Craft ink, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive
Accessories: Owl punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, scallop circle punch, Basic Black marker, Pumpkin Pie marker, Old Olive marker, white gel pen, brayer, sponges, tombow adhesive, dimensionals

Here's a close up of the owls:

I began with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and masked off the moon with a post it note punched from 1 3/4" circle punch.  I brayered Rich Razzleberry 3/4 of the way down the paper, followed by Elegant Eggplant on only the upper portion of the sky; Old Olive was sponged on the bottom 1/4 of the paper.  I removed the mask from the moon and sponged Daffodil Delight inside.  The fence was hand drawn with a Basic Black marker, then the tree branch was added over the moon in Basic Black ink along with the bats in the sky.  The owls were then placed in the scene with dimensionals and stars were added to the sky with a white gel pen.

Hope you enjoyed them!  Thanks so much for looking!
