Age doesn't count...

Another in the "creepy" series...I just love these new stamps, can you tell?

This one I made specifically with the monthly challenge over at VLVS  (home of all that is wonderful in the rubber stamping world...and where you can buy the creepy stamps) in mind and I will admit that I didn't fully read the brief for this one  when I started out -  I was so caught up in the idea of using creepy mouse ....

So initially my background was a bit too colourful...but of course that was easily remedied with the addition of some extra grungy texture and the liberal sponging of darker shades (lots of greys and blacks) . This is offset slightly with the splatters of shimmer paint. Its one of those cards that looks way better in the hand than it does on the screen, but it is one of my favourite makes this week.

I also plan to enter it into the Craft Stamper  Take it Make it Challenge which is a free challenge to make anything as long as it has a stamp on it....which of course this card does....and also into the Make Your Mark challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More

Until next time
