Friday Focus 2

My second post today is for another but very different type of celebration - halloween. I've used the colours from ColourQ and the layout from Freshly Made Sketches and definitely had my two grandsons in mind when putting this card together.

I started by stamping the vertical strips and then overstamped them with some spooky type images. I die cut a tag and stamped the greeting and some slimy goo, then inked around the edges to help it pop from the background card.

Once I'd threaded some twine onto the tag I decided to fix the ends with some more spooky images. And now it's all ready and waiting to go into the post.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Diagonal Stripes & Halloween Spirit
Inks: SU, tangerine tango, daffodil delight; Memento, Paris dusk
Dies: Marianne LR0188 ; Xcut, spiro circle
Embellishments: twine from my stash

Thanks for looking today, so kind of you to drop by my blog.
