Simon Says Monday Challenge “Monster Mash”

Halloween is almost here and it is time for spooky and scary things!  On this card I used the Darice Basket Weave Embossing Folder for the background.  I masked off a circle for the moon and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire & Seedless Preserves for the area around the moon and Orange Marmalade and Mustard Seed for the moon.  The bats are a stamp that I am guessing are by Hero Arts (there wasn’t any name on it).  The “Trick or Treat” stamp is by Rubber Soul and I used distress inks around it too.  I added the stitch lines with a fine black marker and attached it with foam tape.  I would have preferred to have the background in black to make it spookier but I was out!  So, it isn’t as scary as it could have been…

I started making cards in the 90's and have recently started creating again. It has been exciting to catch up on all the new techniques and tools that are now available! I also enjoy cross-stitching and any creative endeavor. I live in Carmichael, CA which is a suburb of Sacramento.
