Something Old and Something New

I was playing with an old stamp and some new background paper. The stamp is called "Ghostly Gale" by Penny Black. I REALLY like the Penny Black company. It's one of those companies that don't have a problem with you selling what you make. Just the usual stuff, giving credit where credit is due. This is one set I like to make pins with too. I'll give it a tutorial try this week and post it later.

The paper is a Shimmer Glitter Paper called "Jeepers Creepers/Candy Corn by Fiskars. It's a Heidi Grace Design. SO adorable!!! I just like the candy corns on it and am actually happy that I used it in the same year I bought it!!! LOL

The background on the ghost image is that new polished stone technique I will be posting soon too. It's such a fun background!

I added a bat brad in the corner. It just looked like it needed something up there. I attached it using the Crop-a-dial. I am finding more uses for that tool. A wonderful investment. It punches though not only a few layers of card stock but through chipboard and even tin cans!!!

I stamped my image on white card stock. Shocker it wasn't watercolor paper, huh??? And I colored it in using a blender pen and markers. I cut the image out with the snips and I had to glue it in place with the Anywhere glue stick. The glossy card stock doesn't really like to hold tape as well as gluing the item in place. I also glued the sky piece onto the black piece of card stock. When you do the polished stone technique on the glossy card stock the card stock curls up while it's drying. I taped the polished stone on the black card stock. Went to get my snips and cut out the ghost image. I was going to attach it and noticed the glossy card stock was curled up again. SO I HAD to glue it! It's a pretty cute card but an even cuter pin! I will be showing that later this week so stay tuned!!

Thank you for visiting my blog,

Polished stone is my go-to is so versatile.
The colors you used made the perfect background for your spook :)
