October 9th - DAY 9 of 31DOH

Well... it's DAY NINE of Smeared Ink's 31 Days of Halloween...a huge blog hop for you to enjoy every day

The blog roll is on my side bar -
 if you are hopping in order you will have come from Erin 
and your next stop is Creepy Glowbugg!

Today...well, the other day I was trawling the net and I came across a Wizard of OZ stamp at
Visible Image.  It hasn't come yet (!) but I did see an example of it being used by Sue Joseph
and it got me was a sort of 'counterpoint' stamped version.

Some of you may know that I am in the process of moving back to the UK from India
- my stash is currently on a ship here:

So I don't have a lot to play with!!
Anyway this is what I came up with:

I am using Aurora Wings' Floral Masquerade

I printed it twice using cream card and red card.
I used a cream card base and matted it with more of the red after adding some lace along one edge.
I cut and coloured the images as shown (using a little red Promarker) and layered up on black card.
Finally I added some Lelli-Bot embellishments.

I will link this to
