pssst...we are having a World of Borders sale!
Various borders up for grabs, some for as little as a $1!  

Today's spooktacular featured project is another one by me, LCDesigner Leigh S-B!
This time I'm sharing a card! ;0)
I used the following stamps:
Carmen's Veranda 
Halloween Background
 the pumpkins and kitty are also part of the large Halloween background stamp!

Lost Coast Designs
large Manga Girls from left to right:
Manga Goth with Socks
Manga Goth Harlequin
Manga Goth with Boots
we also have a mini Manga Girls set too!
A closer look at the details:  The Manga Girls and Halloween background were stamped with lots of masking action.  The Cityscape was stamped separately, fussy cut out and layered on top.  I used 2 Sizzix alphabet dies for the text and portions cut from Tim's Alterations spiderweb die, all were coloured with purple glitter nail polish ;0)  Images were coloured with Copics and metallic touches added with silver and gold gel pens.  I also used Judikins Diamond Glaze on the pumpkins except their eyes and mouths (which are part of the Halloween background stamp), for some fun dimension and I coloured the stars with a metallic silver gel pen for some extra bling. 
 Besides all the fabulous prizes up for grabs in the hop with Smeared Ink don't forget we are also having a Halloween party of our own!  We currently have 3 faBOOlous activites for you to enter and 3 spooktacular prizes you can win!   All our current events and challenges are listed below so I hope we've inspired you to come and join the fun!
