My space to let out my creative juices,and ramble about my day.

I wanted to make a half dozen Halloween cards to send out and didn't have any Halloween paper. Oh my what to do. I've been battling a really bad cold and didn't want to go out to shop (not wanting to share germs with the general public) so I went looking for some DP I could use for my project. Luckily I found my Basic Grey Indian Summer 6x6 pad and with the darker colors I thought it would work. So then I chose this ghost stamp from Penny Black for my focal image. I started out stamping it with Papertrey's Fresh Snow and it looked good but I wanted better. I realized that it is a hybrid ink so I quickly poured on some Reflections white embossing powder and hey presto a whiter ghost. I did worry about embossing on vellum, but I was careful and it worked great.
I used DCWV charcoal card stock for my base and then layered Indian Summer and black and orange vellum to finish the design.
It may not be the spookiest card but I think it turned out really well. What do you think? Thanks for stopping by. P.S. Lots of layers just for you Sandy.
