Beware the Mummy!

We don't "celebrate" Halloween in our family and it's not really a big thing in England, so I've never made any Halloween cards before. It's a shame really as there are some great images for the occasion, and they're a lot of fun to do
This Mummy is a freebie from Just Inklined Digital Stamps, and the sentiment is from Bird's Cards where you can also find loads of different images and sentiments. Both are coloured with Promarkers (just Ivory, Black & dusky pink) Because I don't have any Halloween papers/embellishments in my stash, I decided to try and go for a more tattered look. The card is actually backing cardboard from a pack of handmade paper, but it distresses really well round the edges, and the bottom half of the card was done by wrapping masking tape around a piece of card (after trying to distress the edges). Then I sponged everything with Tim Holtz rusty hinge distress ink!

Challenges I'm entering:
Just Inklined - Halloween Challenge
ABC Challenge - D for Distressing
Stamp Something - Use a Digi
PaperCutz Challenge #59 - Halloween no black/orange

This is a fun card Esme - though this mummy looks more like it wants a cuddle than to scare anyone! Thank you for sharing it with us at Crafty Ann's

This is fantastic. That image is wonderful. Don't feel bad, I live here in the states and I don't really care much for halloween and I'm so glad my kids are grown now and I don't have to worry about it. Thanks so much for playing along at PCC.
