Michael Strong Card of the Day - Manic Monday

This manic card uses a technique called "Ghostly Splatters" for it's effect.  So I sprayed and splattered Goosebumps on some paper and let dry.  Then I sprayed some Dylusions sprays (Squeezed Orange and Pure Sunshine) overtop.  The Goosebumps acted as a resist and that's why you see the white splotches.  I stamped Mikes Spooky Tree in black and then cut it out with my Spellbinders to make the focal image.  For the side image I used some scrap paper from the original technique and coloured the spiderweb from the tree with black marker and stamped it.  Then I coloured the bat from the witch stamp in the same set (again in black) and stamped it.  The fence is an old Sizzix die and the "eek" is from an old Stampin Up! set (Bitty Boos Too).

I really wanted to terrify everyone so I went to the graveyard to take a picture of the card (hoping to get a ghost in the picture or something) and luckily there was a corpse there for extra atmosphere!  So I propped the card up on a bloody hand and VOILA -- my card!

You can run away screaming now...
