A perfect portrait of Howl-o-ween Creeps Frank

I was in a craft store today and saw "portraits" of some scary characters. I thought they were cute, so my brain started figuring out what I'd need to make my own gallery of Halloween portraits. I started by heat embossing the frame and coloring it Old Olive.

I took out my Howl-o-ween Creeps stamp set because there are some real characters in there, and paired it with a new set called Frame It. I wanted my card to look like a portrait hanging on a wall. The bottom piece of dsp was run through the Stripes embossing folder. 

Here's the sketch challenge from Stamping 411 that started today:

Stamps: Howl-o-ween Creeps, Frame It, Teeny, Tiny Wishes;
Ink: Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive;
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Frightful Sight;
Accessories: Black embossing powder, heat gun, dimensionals, silver brads, paper piercer and mat, aquapainter, Word Window Punch, Stripes embossing folder, Dotted Scallops Old Olive Ribbon, 1-1/4" square punch.

I had to giggle, your card sort of has that Munsters feel to it and I could almost hear the "creaking hinge" as you open the card! Love the frame stamp, what a great way to showcase these little Halloween stamps. TFS Terry.
