Magic Night Tag - Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge

Hi Friends,
Here is my project for "A walk on the dark side" You can find out all the guidelines to participate,
as well as, some great inspiration here at the Simon Says Monday Challenge.
I did some multi-generational stamping to build depth within the piles of keys. A single purple ink pad produced many shades of purple. A light dusting of black chalk around the edge completed the spooky overtone. The perfect finishing touch was the addition of gold glitter glue on the candle flames.
This week the Simon Says Stamp Challenge is pushing you to think about all things Halloween or use dark colors on your project. The theme is "A Walk On The Dark Side". As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.
