I created this fun House-Mouse card as a reminder for you to come and play along on the HOP and followed today's SCS / "Chalkboard Effect" Challenge # F4A192, called "Reverse Comic".  

To do this, I used a large House-Mouse Stamp, and stamped the image (three times for layers, then cut each layer out). For image, I used a White Pigment Ink (could do this with Versamark too), then heat embossed with white glitter embossing powder. I added orange metallic gel markers and stickles glitter (for sparkle), in the Pumpkin's openings. The image is triple layered then centered on top panel.
This is such a fun technique. I had tried this last year for a black and white challenge. Must do this one more often. :) Hope you'll join us at House-Mouse & Friends MC and maybe even give this technique a try too.  :)

Thnks for stopping by today. I love hearing from you!

 Happy Creating!
