Standing On The Corner, Out In The Street

Hello.  Welcome.  I've been working on an idea all afternoon but it just wouldn't become what my inner eye saw so clearly.  Do you ever get that?  So I decided I'd start something totally new and I have gone CAS

This card came complete with the deckle edge.  It was pale mauve but that didn't seem right so I saturated it with Colorbox Plumeria and Black Cherry chalk inks.  Yummy.  Then I blended some black arcival along the bottom.  I cut Poppystamps Antique Lamp Post from a silver metal sheet.  The ghost is part of Unity Stamp Co. Be Afraid set.

  3. Oh, this ghost is so very cute, and not scary a bit. Especially because of his feet! Wonderfully inked background, too. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
