Anything goes...

So, of course, mine is Halloween!!!
(Need to count my cards again to see if I'm nearer to 31)

 Simon Says Stamps Challenge...Anything Goes

This was a really fun card to make.
I started with a dark grey base card and added a piece of white card stock that I sponged with Distress ink black soot around the outside edges.
I cut another piece of grey, a bit lighter, card stock and ripped a piece of text weight paper, to use as a template for a spooky sky with Distress ink black soot and a sponge dauber.
In the middle of that card I stamped the Stampendous iron gate with pumpkins, trying hard not to ink up too much of the pumpkins, with Staz-On black.
I used Stamps by Judith grass stamp and the Staz-On black to make it look like dried brush at the bottom of the card.

Now the fun part...
I had purchased these tombstone stickers from Recollections because they showed different faces, skull or fleshy, when you move them.
They fit perfectly and the crow was a bonus sticker with the set.

I just know Stephen will go crazy for this one!!!
He loves cemeteries.
Good thing we live next door to one.
