FM 182: Happy Haunting!

Hello, stampers! At the Friday Mashup challenge blog, they have a very cool challenge called "In a Galaxy.  They provide you with 2 different tutorials on how to make a "galaxy" background.  I watched them both.  They were both so cool, that I decided to give it a try.  However, I had limited time to actually make the card and get it uploaded before the challenge closed. Plus, I didn't have easy access to my paints.  So, unfortunately, my card was made with my reinkers not paint. Bummer!
But, I did have lots of fun making this and plan to dig out those darn paints and give the "galaxy" tutorial a try at a later date. Any's the challenge:

And here's what I made:

I used watercolor paper and followed the first tutorial of the 2 provided.  I also made a matching treat holder with the Fry Box Die. Colors are: Basic Black, and Tangerine Tango.

  This was so much fun, and I can't wait to find my paints and give the other technique a try! Happy Stamping!


  1. So eerily, spookily cute, Annette! I thought the Galaxy technique was fun- you did a great job capturing the effect on your card. Love that treat, too! TFS with the Friday Mashup this week:)

  2. Oooh, fun card! I love the black houses creating a spooky silhouette. And your coordinating fry box is so fun too. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  3. FABULOUS, Annette! Love the spooky card with the creepy sky and black houses! Great treat box, too! XX
