SPOOKY CORNFIELD!!!!!


I made this card with stamps from DRS designs. I used my brayer and a spectrum pad for the background. I brayered the sky on glossy cardstock then inked the edges in black. I stamped the tombstone on grey cardstock and cut them out and inked them for some texture. I stamped the cornstalks onto the glossy cardstock. Be careful when doing this... glossy cardstock can be slippery!!! Just stamp up and down...dont wiggle or rock the stamp... it will not have a crisp image. I arranged the tombstones on the cardsock and them trimmed the edges off. I used pop dots on the one in front. I used my white gel pen for some highlights and added black dots around the outside of the card...for fun!
I stuck the bat on with glue dots... he is sparkly and adds just the right SCARY touch! (and puls... I am pretty batty myself!!!) Hope you like it!
