Wanna Hang Out?

Happy Wednesday OCS Fans! 

I had a little bit of fun with my card this week. I challenged myself...to use tissue paper and material instead of patterned paper. It was an interesting experiment! 

I used "Just Hanging Out and Bat" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

After colouring the stamps with alcohol markers I fussy cut them out. I went one step further with my fussy cutting and cut out our cute vampire's cape. I added some pale orange and silver material from a Halloween bag I found. Sparkle was also added to the bats just for fun. 
I used some white tissue paper I received with a gift - I wanted a used piece so I had some texture. I very carefully! stamped my cob web and fence and glued it onto the back of the black frame I made out of cardstock. I used some orange and black patterned paper to create a second frame and mounted it to black cardstock. The sentiment was created on my computer and voila! A couple orange gumdrops finish off my card.
