Sleepy Hollow Silhouette


I bought some inexpensive frames last week at Walmart for my daughters' school pictures but when I got them home I decided I wanted some nicer ones, or should I say more durable.  My husband likes the headless horseman cut out on the Happy Hauntings cartridge so I made him an awesome halloween picture.   A tip for this headless horseman cut (there are two different horsemen on this cart) is to double it's size if you want it large.  I cut it first at 7 1/2 inches and it was way too small.  For the size in the frame I cut it at 14 inches.  (the frame is 11x14)  The RIP was cut at 2 1/2 inches and I used some chalk on it to give it  a mossy look, although I'm not sure it shows in the picture.  The background paper was one I found at Jo-ann's in a clearance bin.   I'm entering Challenge #31 at Fantabulous Cricut and linking to these parties.
