Soot Stamping

Well I made it through Monday, couldn't wait to get
home so I could play. You know all work and no play is not
good!
I made this card for Gina K. challenge at stamp tv. I started out with glossy paper that I held over a burning candle, just close enough to blacken it but not burn it. Then I stamped my tree which is from Impression Obsession. Then I sprayed a over it, someone said they used hairspray so I guess that would work. Cut that and the border for it using nestablities. The brown I embossed with CB Boo To You folder. The ribbon is a Halloween piece I have had for a while and don't remember where I got it. The corner punch is from sizzex, the little ghost and cat is from Creative Memories. All the card stock I used was left over from another card I had made which is all stamping up. Hope you like my card and thanks so much for looking. Leave me a comment, I love hearing from yall and hurry back!
