Halloween Dance

Hello Friends,
I am so caught up (for me) in my DT work
I decided to take a bit of time  for "me"!

I have a bunch of Halloween papers, stamps, do-dads,
that seem to get neglected year after year....
Plus the fact I just bought a new Stampendous stamp called
"WitchyDance" that I needed to use before Halloween is gone again!

 This is a fun, fun scene I created and when I saw this stamp it not only
made me laugh, the first thing I thought of was
"Dance as if no one were watching"...LOL!!

I had the background (polka dots) that I made last year with a stencil and
molding paste I added a bit or orange ink to..
so, I am thrilled to actually use it!!

The haunted house paper is from Websters Pages "Once upon a Halloween"
I added a corner spider web I had already cut and a moon tucked behind.
The tree is one  from Cheery Lynn Designs that 
I cut the other day for my other Halloween scene card
you might of seen HERE...I didn't like the look of it on that card,
but it fits in good here, I think!!
The bats were punched with a SU punch on corrugated paper
giving them a bit of dimension!

The sentiment I printed in "word" in the "chiller" format!
My cute little dancers were stamped in Versamark and embossed in black EB powder.

So there you have it....I am having so much fun, I might create another one for tomorrow!!

What a cute stamp and the sentiment is perfect with it! Love your polka dot background. Amazing to think you made that with a stencil. I'm a great collector. Much better at collecting than I am at using. You do an amazing job with your DT stuff, but I know it's fun to just fool around sometimes, too.
