CONGRATS to Marie-alice our new FS for this week! She has a great gallery and I enjoyed browsing through it. I had some thoughts in mind ftom yesterday's IC challenge and when I saw all of her window cards and the Halloween card below, I knew I had to combine all the elements and make it!
I'm thinking this card was waaay too much fun for me to make! Heehee! Seriously, these kinds of cards that evolve and have layers of stamping are my favs to make. BUT, I also like CAS. Go figure! It's good to be diverse, right? Right?
HOW I STAMPED IT:
On a SU light grey panel, I stamped the Mellow Sun Arts arched window, masked it then stamped it with LKR's net. Next I stamped a Deep Red's distressed strip, then MFT's woodgrain. I stamped the monster in SU's artichoke mixed w/black Versafine, and shadow stamped him in old olive. Stamped the ghost in SU kraft white, then shadowed him with old olive. Finished it with a light stamp over of Hero Arts newspaper print. Too much fun, I tell you!
Thank YOU for looking! :)

Wow Miss Gabby, I have said it before, your talent and style is sooooooooo diverse. I am in awe that the same person can make a shimmery winter wonderland one day, then back it up the next day with a card where a graveyard, monsters and ghosts are the focus. WOW!!!!

Oh, your shadowy stamping definitely adds to the spooky look, very cleverly done - I'm not that good at layering up stamping, but you've obviously got it down to an art form, glad you had so much fun with it!
