From the Crypt

I really like the images in the stamp set "From the Crypt". I'm not much of a Halloween person but for some reason I was drawn to this stamp set. I still have a few cards to make for family members that live out of state and I was inspired by the post on Beate's blog for this card. I had to emboss the image 3 times before I had one that I was satisfied with. I think the black pigment ink pad I was using needs to be replaced. The skull is stamped on a 2 1/2" x 2 3/4" piece of Certainly Celery DSP using Versa Mark ink and then embossed with black embossing powder. The Halloween Night DSP (retired) contained paper with a spider web on it but I wanted it to stand out more so I enhanced the web with a white Signo gel pen. I really like how this card turned out.
