I started by taking some white card stock and distressing with Stormy Sky, Seedless Preserves, and Milled Lavender distress inks. I then spritzed with water and finished with a touch of Pumice Stone on the edges. I had masked the moon, so used the Ripe Permission ink to distress it. I added the spider web in the corner with Colourbox Frost White ink stamping several times. I stamped the bats on black card and coloured the eyes with gel pen and black enamel accents. The fence was stamped 4 times side by side and distressed with Gathered Leaves distress ink and cut out. The ghostly owl was cut from white card and popped up for dimension. I stamped the sentiment over the moon. Quite pleased with my first Halloween card.
I'd also like to say a big thank you to all of you who sent me cards and well wishes after my recent surgery. It really made me feel very special. I am doing extremely well... I am just about able to do every thing around the house now... just can't bend over to make the bed or do the vacuuming. I am still off work for another 2 1/2 weeks. Go back to the surgeon on the 11th for my checkup.
