Dark & Dreary Regional Card Swap

At Regionals, I also joined a card swap, organized by fellow SCS 'stampintottin'. Great time to play with a stamp set that I haven't played with yet, Dark & Dreary.

I really love the 'happy halloween 31' image with the gate, so I had to incorporate that into a card. Well, I went looking for inspiration, and ended up CASEing 'odden designs' from SCS. I sponged the edges of everything and the raised areas of the spider web with Basic Black ink to make it more dark and dreary. And the brocade spider flourish from From the Crypt works great as a background.

This card serendipitously satisfies this week's Friday Mashup challenge. Check it out!

Stamps: Dark & Dreary, From the Crypt; Paper: Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White; Ink: Cajun Craze, Basic Black, Black Stazon; Accessories: Sponge, 1/2" Circle punch, Scissors, Raven lace trim, Brads, Spider Web embossing folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
