It's all Fun and Games!


Welcome to this weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge! This week we have another wonderful sketch by Pam Limric. Our theme this week is Fun and Games. As always, you can use the sketch or the theme or both!
I used this fun image by Sandra Hammer called "Spooky Tree Background Stamp". Rather than use this as a background I decided to use it as the focal image of my card. I added a fun Halloween poem (author unknown) and finished it off with these adorable Cuttlebug die bats.
I used some amazing papers for my card. I have never worked with anything like them so I have to share. The black paper has a velvet feel but is smooth. It is really heavy cardstock with a matte finish that changes when stroked....just like velvet!
I also used a beautiful iridescent paper that inks beautifully and still shines like crazy. It gave my image a moonlit glow :)
