31 Days Of Halloween

Don't have the right decorative paper for your card background?  It's okay, you don't need it, make your own!!  Here is how my card was made.

1.   To make the back ground lay the LX7001 Damask stencil on white paper, spray with black metallic spray. Before removing the stencil, lay another white cardstock panel on top of the stencil to soak up the spray on top, this is the panel I used.
Last year I used the same stencil on my card for 31 Days of Halloween and it looks completely different, you can see it HERE.
2.  Once the panel is dry, sponge with violet ink and stamp Danse Macabre on decorated panel with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Color in the skeleton with a white Uniball pigment pen.
3.  Stamp words from the Tricky Words Perfectly Clear Set on white paper with black ink.  Tear the edges and sponge with purple ink.
