31 Days of Halloween Day 6 - Frank's Memories

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome to Day 6 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today you get Cathy. That's me.
I made this card to share with you all today.  I call it Frank's Memories. I started out with a black card base. Next I stamped Gothic ATC text on different spots on the card with white ink. Then I grabbed a Tim Holtz Halloween stencil (skull crossbones is the one I used). Again I used white ink and added it through the stencil. I then took an evidence tag, filled it out, added water and scrunched it up. I dried it with a heat gun, distressed the edges and added brown ink to them.  Got a poison label and inked the edges of that with brown ink. Set all aside, I stamped Frank on copic friendly paper and colored him in with copic markers. Cut him out and edged with black marker, so you don't see white around the edge.
Now I assemble the card. Added the poison label to the card. I took the tag and added the charm and the string and added foam squares to the back to raise it up next I added Frank. Using foam squares on him also. Last I edged the card with white ink to tie it all together.
