Getting Ready for some Spooky Fun!

With Halloween just around the corner, my son and I have been doing some spooky crafting. Tonight we have painted a china pumpkin, a bat and made some pipe cleaner spiders!

And back in the craft room, I have been making a Halloween Card.

I had great fun creating the background - first using Distress Ink in Stormy Sky, Black Soot and Dusty Concord on Centura Pearl Card (the uncoated side). I used a mask to create the tree silhouettes in the background. I then stamped and embossed the two trees and the gate is just the top of a Paper Artsy full size stamp. The bat I stamped in Distress Ink too. Finally I made a banner which reads Happy Halloween!

I am going to enter the following challenges with this card:

Try It On Tuesday - Halloween
Make My Monday - Halloween

Oh I love how the silhouette trees look so ghostly with the black trees in the front. Very clever to sneak off to the craft room...your card looks brilliant.
