Blog Hop!

Hopefully you came here from Hetty's blog but if not you can start the blog hop here at Michael Strong's blog.

I made a Halloween card for the blog hop.  For this spooky card I took 3 squares of cardstock (3x3, 4x4, 5x5) and layered them on top of one another.  Then I randomly stamped Mike's cat and a spiderweb stamp in black craft ink on top.  When the ink was still wet I sprayed on some Dylusions sprays (Lemon Zest and Squeezed Orange) and then splattered with some black ink.  The ink ran a bit to get a cool, spooky effect.  After the pieces were dry I pulled the pieces apart and matted them with some black cardstock.  I then put on some clear embossing paste with a small circle stencil in some places and let dry.  I added some black ribbon and some orange fiber and added a tag with the sentiment.  Hope you like!

There will be a name drawn from all the people who comment on the blogs and the winner will get Mike's new Pumpkin Harvest stamp set! 

Next up on the Blog Hop is Peg:
