I absolutely love Halloween and really wanted to create a spooky scene. I used this fun image by Sandra Hammer called “Spooky Tree Background Stamp“. Rather than use this as a background I decided to use it as the focal image of my card. I added a fun Halloween poem (author unknown) and finished it off with these adorable Cuttlebug die bats.
I used some amazing papers for my card. I have never worked with anything like them so I have to share. The Velvet Black paper has a velvet feel but is smooth. It is really heavy cardstock with a matte finish that changes when stroked….just like velvet!
I also used a beautiful iridescent paper that inks beautifully and still shines like crazy. It gave my image a moonlit glow 🙂
