Day 4 of 31 Days: Crowscape

Happy Day 4 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a quickie card, that has a bit of cool creep factor to it. I started off the the Crowscape Stamp from Stampendous, and I stamped it with StazOn on to vellum. I tore all 4 edges to give it a more ragged look.

Then, I took my card base and I used Aged Silver embossing enamel from the Silver Frantage Encrusted Jewel Kit along the edges. Can you tell I am obsessed with these kits and this effect? You've got to get at least one to try them out! They are so much fun.

This card took me about 10 minutes to make, which is fast! Sometimes you just need to bang out a quick card, and I'm really happy with how this one turned out. So for now I bid you adieu. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Love the simplicity of this - I should use vellum more often, it has a gorgeous translucency x
