Happy Haunting

Today I have a card for the Dynamic Duos Challenge -  I haven't played this challenge for a while but I like that there are only two colors to use -  I seem to have trouble creating spontaneously when I have to use 3 or more colors - as they are often colors I don't naturally reach for!

Anyhoo -  Kraft and Black I like!    I used some new stamps from Waltzingmouse for my Happy Haunting Card
This wonderful tree stamp is Spooky Tree Backgrounder, the sentiment is from All Hallows Eve and the bats and spider (do you see him??!) are from an older set called Halloween Party.

I layered  a piece of washi tape under the sentiment that I popped up on foam dots.  I sponged all the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink just to give it a little shadow.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Spooky Tree Backgrounder, All Hallows Eve, Halloween Party
Paper:  Kraft, True Black - PTI
Ink:  Ranger Distress Black Soot and Old Paper
Accessories:  washi tape - Darice, foam dots.
