New Challenge at Left of Center

A new challenge starts today over at Left of Center

The theme is Die Cuts and I have used an image 'Skull and Flowers' 
from The Stamping Chef on my Project.

Firstly, I wanted to make an atmospheric background!
 I used a red card blank, matted with a piece of glossy cardstock to which I had added several colours using SU stamp pads and a foam pad.
I then left this for some time to dry...

I then added a moon - triple stamped in three colours (using stamps from a Kitchen Sink set that I have had years and not used for ages!!) - and punched out.
The die I Used for the scary tree is Tim Holtz 'Branch Tree', cut from brown cardstock.

Finally I added my main image, coloured with Promarkers, trimmed, and matted onto more cardstock.

Hope you like it and will be inspired to join us at LOC!

Happy Crafting!
