Ghostly Greetings

This card was so fun to make! Have you ever just
started pulling out different things and see how
they all come together? That is just how this
card happened!

It starts with a simple 4&1/4" by 5&1/2"
black cardstock base. Next, a 4" by 5&1/4"
piece of white cardstock...inked up with
Black Soot and Dusty Concord Distress Ink
and then distressing the edges of this piece.

Then I pulled out some Tim Holtz/Sizzix goodies.
The Spooky Tree Die and the Picket Fence
On the Edge Die
. After I cut out the tree on
white cardstock, Black Soot Crackle Paint gave
the tree it's spooky texture. But I wanted to
add more to the background....the tree die cut
negative shape made a great stencil with some
Black Soot Ink.

The fence was cut from white cardstock, and
then heavily inked with Black Soot Ink. The
tree and fence are foam dotted to the card.
My little ghostie stamp on vellum and then
on cardstock (and colored with Copic C3
and blender) finished it off.

Next time you are "stuck" for a card idea....just
pull out a few items and see what you can do....
you never know where it might take you!
