Spook Sisters Papertake Weekly Challenge

This week's challenge over at Papertake Weekly is "The Dark Side" so I decided to go really Gothic with mine and use a favourite Paper Artsy stamp which I own because my elder daughter is in a black phase at the moment.

I inked a piece of card with VersaMagic inks in Persimmon, Mango Madness and Red Magic and stamped the girl collage with black ink. I stamped the text from another Paper Artsy set round the edges, gradually fading the ink out. I added black letter stickers to spell spooky and inked the edges in black.
I stuck the image to a black panel, wider on the right hand side and embossed with the dots border from the Cuttlebug With Love borders set. I added tiny gunmetal pearls and a further inked and stamped text panel. I stuck this on to a grey newsprint card blank.
