It's a Boo for All!

Okay, I am not the biggest fan of Halloween.  It's all my Mom's fault!  She said she hated Halloween, but then always made me the best costumes...go figure.  I think it was that she hated the pressure that she put on herself around Halloween!  I find that I do that to myself, trying to make Eva and Claire costumes (ps...I can't sew), when I should just let them be whatever they want and march straight to Walmart and buy them!

But something changed this year, and I am finding that I am loving so many Halloween stamp sets out there, there might be a turn around in my Halloween attitude!  The stamps on this card are from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Midnight much fun to "play" with!  This card is for the "Friday Free for All" Challenge at Splitcoaststampers...we were to use Wendy's sketch, and for bonus points, you could only use stamps included in 1 set! 

I stamped the witches, bats, and "BOO" sentiment in Versamark (clear, watermark) ink onto PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock, and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged over the images with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Black Soot and Vintage Photo, and the images magically appear...spooktacular good fun!
