I started by stamping my image over the striped background that had been mounted on caramel cardstock. Then I simply colored in my skeleton using a white gel pen to make him pop off the page a little. I think it gives a neat effect. I stamped my Happy Halloween saying from Lonely Buy and Puff on a piece of caramel cardstock, and mounted both on a plain black cardstock background.

To finish it off, I attached a sheer black ribbon that has a striped ribbon wrapped around one end, and a dried flower from my yard on the other end. Then I added three black sequins using brads, and finally stitched some x's using black hemp.
I hope you're not too disappointed with this really plain project, but I adore it and there is also a reason why I didn't get to do something elaborate today...I spent all day lugging out Halloween decorations and making clay bones! I'll share the bones when I finish, I will be keeping some of them and have sold some, and they are just too fun! I'll also have some pics of my decorated house up in the next couple of days for your enjoyment. In the meantime, have a wonderful time hopping through all of our Wicked Blogs today! Don't forget you can find them in my sidebar. See you tomorrow!
