Boo to You

I love the sketches at Freshly Made Sketches and this week's immediately struck a chord.  I knew what I wanted to make as soon as I saw it.

Mine would be a Hallowe'en card but I had no ghostly images with which to work.  Thank goodness for snips, Whisper White paper, and a bit of imagination.  Voila, ghosts!  I shaded (yeah, notice the play on words) around them lightly using Smoky Slate so that they would appear to have some substance.  Then I cut a spider's web using my There She Goes Spider's Web Die.  I wanted that web across the card in place of the string in the sketch.

For the button, I simply stamped the spider from the retired Googly Ghouls stamp set.  Green eyes were perfect since I used the Mossy Meadow as my second layer.  My base, of course, was Basic Black, followed by the Mossy Meadow and then another layer of black set askew.  

Along with the ghosts, webs and spider, I needed a sentiment, but nothing too serious.  What could be more perfect than the "boo to you" from the brand new Good Greetings stamp set?
