BOO, DID I SCARE YOU?

This was a busy week both with blogging and at home so this is a dual purpose project.


The SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE this time was to make something with a tree. I am participating in a Halloween themed ATC swap so I thought this would be a good time to combine the two.



I'm sure I broke the ATC rules by adding the little fold up flap but I thought it would be fun to make it a bit 3-D, I am hoping my swap partner won't mind. I used the same technique as I showed earlier this week and made a little graveyard scene with my cool Martha Stewart tombstone punch. It both embosses and punches at the same time. The background was done with masking and sponging. Boy, those ATC's are so tiny. I am used to making a big 6X6 card and I had to really work at something so small.



Check out the challenge and give it a go, they always have fun themes and great prizes. Last week's was some Tim Holz crackle paint ooooh aaaaah!
