I have an eerie Halloween scene for you this evening. This card was put together using stamps from different manufacturers. I started with a piece of Shimmery White paper and stamped the images in StazOn Black. The Jack-o-lantern was colored with Only Orange and Yoyo Yellow. A little sparkle was added to his grin with a lemon spica pen.
The background was sponged in Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue, Distress Milled Lavender and Distress Black Soot.
I accented the cobwebs and leaves with a silver spica pen.
The scene was adhered to a piece of Perfect Plum and then mounted to a black linen card. Here is a peek at the inside.
I want to thank everyone who has left me comments over the past couple of days. I'm a little behind on my email and will be visiting you this week. Yesterday was a full day with outside work. I wasn't kidding when I said I had leaves to rake.
All these leaves are from our maple tree ...
and this is what the lawn looks like now :-)
We are prepping for the big storm coming up the east coast to New York. Our generator is working, we have batteries and tons of candles. I'm thinking of you Cynthia down there in New Jersey - be safe.
