Have a Ghostly Good Time



I just LOOOVE this Ghostly Greetings set from OCL! Halloween cards are so much fun to make, aren't they?

Some details about the card....it's a 5" square card and the layout is Mercy Kerin's latest sketch. LOVE her sketches and I'm so excited that she's bringing them back again! The main image was masked and Summer Sunrise ink was sponged around it on that main deckled panel. Then a second ghost was stamped, cut out, and popped up on foam tape. Also up on foam tape is the sponged oval sentiment, the black deckled mat behind the sentiment, and the black mat behind the main image. Vellum layers were added behind the oval sentiment and under the green DP panel. I got this cool DP at Mike's. The spider web side is embossed, the black polka dot strips are from the flip-side of the paper.

Here's a close-up:


Here's the inside:
