Its getting towards that time of the year when the ghosts and ghouls come out to play! I love Halloween and have fun with my son decorating the house and having a spooky tea party.

Here is a Halloween card I have just made using one of my new Imagination Crafts stencils.  I sponged Distress Ink through the stencil to create the background and the moon.  I used a PaperArtsy stamp for the gate and various spooky stamps from a set I have. Once finished I went round the edge of the card with Black Soot distress ink to darken the card. I printed and mounted my own greeting on the front.
