Halloween Old London City

Hi everyone,

Today I am joining Hand Stamped Sentiments for their Halloween Theme Challenge.  I hope you will join in the fun!  This is my first Halloween card of the season ... more to come.

I stamped both Old London City and the Sky Witch Writer in StazOn Black.  Next, I punched a 1 3/8" circle from a post-it note as a mask for the moon.  The background was sponged in Adirondack Cool Peri, Perfect Plum, Adirondack Purple Twilight, Adirondack Eggplant and Elegant Eggplant.

I removed the mask and applied SU Frost White to the moon for a little shimmer.  This card took me no time at all to create :-)

I mounted the focal image to a piece of Brushed Silver then onto a DCWV purple textured card.

Please be sure to stop by HSS to see what the design team members have created.

Can you see the shimmer?
