MIM #83 Card Aisle Inspiration

     Rarely do I cruise down the card aisle for inspiration. However, after viewing the MIM # 83 video, I decided to give it a try. While at Krogers,  I saw several cards that I snapped pixs of with my camera phone. I decided to use this one since I still have about 6 more Halloween cards to make. (Sorry for the Blurred picture)



  This is the card I made.

   I had to stamp my sentiment on pattern paper because no other color was visible on the black card stock except for Fresh Snow and Sweet Blush which I did not want to use. The sentiment is stamped using the technique of selective stamping from Think Big Favorites # 1 and 7 as well as an old wooden stamp from my stash. Scary was stamped with Outline Alphabet and colored in.

 Here are some up close shots of the scary critters.
 The bat was stamped on Smoky Shadows card stock using an Inky Antic Halloween stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by.

What a fun Halloween card. I saw this was the topic of Make it Monday, and hope to go to Target tomorrow. Much better to take a picture of the card, than to buy it! More money for stamps.

What a fun Halloween card! Those googly eyes are extra fun and I like your choice of paper instead of fresh snow or sweet blush.
