Anybody else think it's Tuesday today? Here in Canada, we celebrated Labour Day on Monday so had an extra day off this past weekend. It's thrown me off - although I am certainly not complaining!

Brenda is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's curious about our backgrounds - our project backgrounds, that is. Brenda has challenged us to create our own backgrounds.

For my card, I started by stamping and heat embossing a large web stamp that I've had (sitting unused) in my supply cupboard for years. I figured that it was time to pull it out. Once stamped, I then used a variety of distress inks to finish the background. The little mummy is from Your Next Stamp. He's so cute!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the fabulous backgrounds created by the rest of the Girlfriends - and then get out your crafting supplies to create your own background!

I'm also entering my card in the latest Your Next Stamp sketch challenge (Challenge #72). I flipped the sketch upside down to work with my scene.

Products used:

The Hero Arts spider web cling stamp that I used for my background seems to be out of production. The little bats are dies from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).

I LOVE this Kate!!! The DI background is perfect for this darling little spook. The spider web is perfect for very fun card!

Very cute. I like the spider web (even if I am not a fan of spiders or Halloween either).
