Boo!

Hey,

Happy Friday.

I am off to London tonight, be back just before my birthday..its going to be a busy week.

As you know I played along with the MFT contest yesterday.


I recently bought a few new MFT items - the Mummy stamp and die were part of that little haul..

I wanted to make a Halloween card for a friend's Son, he hasn't been very well and despite his age (he's 5) he loves getting cards :)

To make it a bit different and not too spooky, I die cut the black card with a SSS stitched die, then I used a Tim Holtz stencil and white distress paint to create the background. I love the effect that I ended up with. I went over some of the lines with a silver wink of stella brush pen, to add some sparkle.

I stamped, coloured and die-cut the mummy and affixed him/her to my card with foam tape.

The stamp set comes with some really fun sentiments, but I decided to stamp Boo in random places in white on the background.

I am very happy with it, it fits my mental brief and I think Reuben will like it too.

Have a great weekend, my posts will be scheduled next week, so I won't be AWOL.
