Chocolate Baroque: 'Tis Near Halloween

Good morning, friends. Today I want to share with you an easy Halloween card featuring stamps from the Witching Time A5 set by Chocolate Baroque.

I stamped the image with Jet Black Archival Ink and used Distress Inks to create the background. On the top half I used Dusty Concord and Hickory Smoke. For the bottom half: Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy. And to bring it all together, a light dusting of Black Soot all around the edges. Then I stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Archival Ink.

I coloured the image with Copics, cut it out and mounted it on to the inked background using foam tape. To finish the card, I added a few black bling. This card was inspired by my black cat. His name is Richard Parker.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I so appreciate your visits and comments, despite my continued absence. I am struggling at the moment with work and keeping up with all the DT stuff. Sometimes it seems like the harder I try to keep up, the further behind I fall. Just one more weekend and I'll be back on track - my mantra for the past 2 months. No change! LOL. Got to laugh before total despair sets in... which is why I am so grateful for your support.
