Toil & Trouble Halloween Bash Swap Card for Convention 2013 PLUS Halloween Fabric Owls!!!

Hello Blogging Friends
Yes! I am just now showing you my card I made for my Swap at the Stampin' Up! Convention in SLC! lol I have been a crazy busy person lately and wanted to post it everyday! I don't know how time flies like that. I would set my goals in the morning to do a post that day, then the day would get away from me and then another and so on!!! Does that happen to you? I have so many cards I have created this year and some last year, I could do a post everyday for the rest of the year! Lol I will try to do better. (smiley face)
I had fun with this card. When I got this stamp the first thing I wanted to do with it was the "Rock and Roll" Technique I love this Technique and use it all the time.
How I did it...
I stamped the image in Summer Starfruit first then took the Pumpkin Pie ink pad and rolled the stamp into it around the edges, you can also hold the stamp up looking at it and take the Pumpkin Pie ink and dab it in the areas that you want the Pumpkin Pie ink, you can't do that all the time but because the stamp is so Big you can.

I made 50 of these swaps and had to cut out each skeleton, I did bend his arm a little so that it looked like he was holding the ticket. I used a glue dot to glue down his arms. I did have some help from my friend and downline Rachel... Thanks a ton girl! It was like an assembly line, I stamped she embossed and both put them together. Oh yeah... we both were in pain from cutting out the skeleton's! lol
