For the background on my card I have used Spiced Marmalade and dried Marigold as my base, I then blended them together with water, I over stamped it using Elegant Eggplant ink with the background stamp called Wonderfully Worn, I then also stamped the bats and the sentiment from the stamp set called Wicked Cool,  in Elegant Eggplant
I cut the image out, and then mounted it on the background with foam tape, and layered it with Pistachio Pudding and Elegant Eggplant card stock.

Thank you

Hi Everyone this is a new image by Sandra Caldwell, called 1112 Old Lady Indian. I have cored her with Copics and cut her out. The layer she is on is a faux leather technique where you put die cuts onto paper and trace around them with a stylus then ink the paper with a yellow ink, which I have used Crushed Curry, then an orange in, which I used Pumpkin Pie, then a light brown which I used Soft Suede, then a darker brown, which I used Early Espresso. I cut it out with the top note die, then cut off the border and cut out a piece of red with the same die and placed behind for a frame effect. I place it on a soft suede base which I stamped with hardwood background stamp. I added her with pop dots and then added the die cut thank you which I used the celebrate set from Tim Holtz.
