Creepy Graveyard

     I got inspired by the "Silhouettes" theme at Double D this fortnight and dug through old stamps and digi images I have which either were silhouettes or could be used as silhouettes with a little help from a black ProMarker or paint brush.  This was a rubber stamp (maker unknown due to its age) but not a silhouette stamp.  I had to make it a silhouette by coloring the open parts of the stamp with black.


Colored with ProMarkers and gel inks
Sentiment backing is 3 layers cut with a Spellbinders die
"Creepy" cut with Die-namics die
Eyelets used on sentiment layers
Bottom edge cut with Cheery Lynn die

     I have a few more Halloween cards coming over the next 3 or 4 days because I discovered that one of my friends, who is a social worker, has a need for several more to give to some of her clients.  What a great excuse for me to make another dozen Halloween cards!  Yippee.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
