I made three cards for this hop using three different techniques.  

This card used the splatter technique.  I took some inexpensive paint pots, dipped a toothbrush in the black and then splattered it on the paper.  I also tried to really go for a monochromatic look for this card.  The image and sentiment are both from the AKC Dog:  Old English Sheep Dog clear stamps from

Next up was a shaker card...

I've seen so many shaker cards and they all look fun, so I wanted to finally try making my own.  I tried to keep this card clean and simple, with a little bit of sparkle!  The stamp is from the Brentwood Owl collection at

Last is Happy Halloween!

This stamp image features the art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith, more of which can be found here.  I used the "mind the gap" technique and used a lot of designer mat stack paper to enhance the look of this card.  The pumpkins have glitter pen on their lantern parts and the bones of her wings have crackle accent applied to them.

Everything was colored with Copic markers.
