EEK! You're So Scary!

Day Six of my Halloween card sharing ~ four more to go.

I think I enjoyed this one the most of all the Halloween cards I made.  I've combined two stamp sets to make this Scary Scene.

The background stamp is Great Impressions, Halloween Trees and the characters are from Polkadoodles Spooktacular stamp set.

I started by stamping the background on a 4" square of cardstock and stamping the ghosts, mummy and bat on a separate piece.  For the background, I used Copic marker  BV000 to lightly color the night sky and marker B60 to color the spider webs in the trees.  I mounted that on black cardstock that I had die cut using Pink & Main's Scalloped Square.

Next I colored the Bat using Copic C5, the Ghosts using N0 and N1, and the Mummy using E40 and E41.  After fussy cutting them out, I used N5 to cover the edges of each image so there wouldn't be any white showing through. 

The sentiment is also from the Polkadoodles Spooktacular set.  I stamped it with Versa Clair Monarch and used a stitched fishtail die to cut it. 

The card base is 6" square and matted with black 'bat' paper.  Next I secured the framed Halloween Trees in the center and then added the Halloween characters around the card.  I added the sentiment using several foam squares.

Since this card was going to my nephew's children, I added 'Duncan 2022' to the tombstone! ;-)
