Toxic Treats Halloween Card

A Halloween card for a card challenge with my local stamping club.

All stamps used are by Stampin' Up:
Toxic Treats
Hand Penned Holidays
Etruscan Elegance (Stampin" Around Jumbo Wheel)

Used Stampin' Up's Framelits Labels Collection die on the Toxic Treats witch stamp.

All stamps are inked with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and stamped on Copic X-Press paper.  Die cut out the witch stamp.  Cut around the sentiment "Happy Halloween" following the main curves of the letters, but about 1/4" away from them.  Then all images were sponged with Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Inks (sponging from lightest to darkest) Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, and Festive Berries.  Attached the Etruscan Elegance image to the white card base.  Popped-up the Toxic Treats witch stamp with dimensional foam tape, then used a double layer of the dimensional foam tape to pop-up the "Happy Halloween"  sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Have a super day.

Your shading with these inks is not only colorful, but they GLOW too! Wonderful layers and a striking contrast on the white card base.
