I decided to go Off Kilter with my pattern papers! I picked out a few different patterns and cut them into 2-inch strips. Then I layered them over a card base, just so I would know that they all covered the card base okay. With liquid adhesive, I added glue to parts that over hanged other patterns, this way all the strips adhered to each other.

Then I set it aside to dry and then stamped the adorable owls from the Happy Haunting set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them! I used DG3, DP2, DP4, DP4, EB1, EB2, EB6, IG6, IG8, IG10, MB1, MB3, MB4, RB1, RB2, RB3. With sharp scissors, I fussy cut out the owls.

When the pattern papers were dry I adhered the off kilter patterns to a white card base, let that dry and then trimmed off the over hang. From white cardstock, I die cut a banner and stamped the Happy Haunting sentiment.

I added the banner and the owls to the card with foam tape. The card needed a little something so added a few orange, clear and black rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by!! Make sure you stop by and play along with us!!
