Stampotique "Early Halloween" card

To me, there is no such thing as "early Halloween" - I think it should be celebrated all year long! Anyway, I was lucky enough to get a few Stampotique stamps recently and they definitely look spooky enough to use for Halloween, so here is my card:

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card (square 5" x 5")
Stampotique "Prom Queen" Stamp, #6051
Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black
Assorted Gel Pens
Diamond Stickles
Wink of Stella in Silver
Computer Generated Phrase
Scrap Black Paper
Puffy Sparkly Bat sticker from the Dollar Tree

I was most concerned with stamping right on the square card, but thankfully, it came out fine (I always fear I am going to mess up terrible when I am stamping right on the item).  I then colored her using various gel inks, all different kinds and manufacturers.  I "dotted" around the card with the silver Wink of Stella to add some texture and covered
her skirt with the Diamond Stickles for some glitz.  I chose the font for the saying, printed it out on white card, matted it on black card and attached it to the base card.  Lastly, I added the bat sticker to give the card a bit more Halloween look to it

This was a very fun and easy card, and I had a blast coloring her in with all of my neglected gel pens. I hope you can see how pretty she looks.
