Trick or Treat

A simple Halloween card made using a Penny Black stamp and October Afternoon paper.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine black ink and clear embossed. A silver pen was used to highlight the sentiment.   The stamped image was colored with copic markers a then cut out and popped on the background paper.  A fun image to color.  Hope you enjoy
