Rockin' October Guest Designer - Your Next Stamp

Yippee!  I was asked to be the Rockin' Guest Designer over at {YOUR NEXT STAMP} and of course I said yes!  I love the YNS stamps and I am so happy to have this chance to play along with the October challenges.
This week we have a color challenge for you:
Orange, Yellow and Brown
Perfect for Autumn and perfect for Halloween!
I used the new stamp set "CUTE WITCH ELLIE and her KITTY" which is just adorable.  I stamped Ellie and her kitty onto watercolor paper and used my Distress Inks to water color the image.  I also used Distress Inks to create a background scene around the images.  I masked off the stamped/colored images and blended on the color with the Distress Ink blending tool.
The ribbon is from The Ribbon Carousel.  I tied it into a bow with black and white twine and an orange button from my stash.  I added some highlights with a white gel pen and Stickles.  The sentiment is from the "Happy Haunting" stamp set that comes with an awesome haunted house image!
Challenge Rules:
1. Every Thursday we post a new YNS Challenge
2. You have the entire month to play along
3. Link your challenge entry to the YNS Blog post and/or to the SCS challenge thread
4. If you would like to post your challenge card in the SCS gallery please use the code provided for that challenge - YNSC18
5. You do not have to use YNS Stamps but if have some of our stamps we would love to see you ink up!

Be sure to stop by the {YOUR NEXT STAMP} challenge blog to play along!
