A Little Spooky Stamping

If you are looking for the
EtsyInspired Challenge,

Thought I would share with you a little
'spooky' stamping I've been doing.

I totally CASED this card when I was at
my 'not-so-local' scrapbooking store.
I was on a mission to pick up some of the new
fall stamps from The Memory Box collection
and I scored big time!

There was a card on display that used this 'lighting' technique
and I knew I wanted to re-create it.
This gorgeous paper is part of the Memory Box fall
collection.  I stamped the lamp post with kitty in a strategic
place on the paper and then proceeded to 'freehand'
the branches to go 'through' the light.
The moon with bats image (and the sentiment used below) 
are from Artful Inkables.

Here's another variation on the same theme...

Hope you enjoyed a little 'spookiness'.
I know we are still in the thick of summer,
but I just couldn't wait to have a little play
with this fantastic collection.
