Candy Monster

Today is challenge day with my friends on CCEE Stampers and hostess Joanne has a double challenge for us.

First, you must make a true one-layer card..... nothing popped up or embellished. Second your card must have a Halloween or Thanksgiving theme.

Well living in Australia I don't do either theme, but I wanted to play along. What does Halloween have other than the spooky theme... Its candy right.

In the past few years Halloween has become popular with the retail outlets and you can purchase all sorts of candy.

I just had to use this Tayored Expressions,  Candy Monster stamp and die set.
After stamping the monster I made a mask with the monster die, I then made a reverse label mask and sponged in the distressed inks.
