Happy Halloween!

 I've been having fun with Ranger Distress Oxides, making backgrounds for my cards. Using yellow, orange and purple, I applied the colors to a strip of watercolor paper. Then I sprayed it with water, blotted, added more color and repeated the process until I was satisfied.  Next I attached strips of scrap Halloween themed card stock to a piece of card stock slightly smaller than the black card blank.  After all the strips were attached I trimmed around the edges and added the watercolored strip with the die cut black silhouettes.  (I cut off the umbrella and added a die cut bat but didn't glue down its wings.)  For the words, I used a strip of Doodlebug washi tape that I had in my stash.  I am happy with the way this card turned out and especially glad to use up more paper scraps.  Hope that you will have a safe Halloween....be happy and eat all the candy you want!!!!!

Really cute!
Happy Halloween!

P/s: I haven't eaten any candy but I had ice-cream and yogurt for breakfast because the fridge broke down and they needed to be "saved"! ;)
