Happy Hauntings

So the witching hour will soon be nigh for those celebrating Halloween on the 31st. I love the day but prefer to think of the traditional origins rather than the commercialised merchandise! We will be carving our pumpkin as usual and enjoying a spooky tea.

This spooky card I made for a Halloween Card Swap at UK Stampers Group on Facebook.

I turned to an old Creative Expressions set of stamps which are still my favourite for the window, ghostly figure,pumpkins and ivy. I stamped these onto a background I made using Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and water. 

I used a stencil and Distress ink to add the spooky tree. I stamped and coloured the pumpkins using watercolour pencils before cutting out and adding to the front. The black base card was put through an embossing folder and then I rubbed gold ink over the top to highlight.

I hope you all have a fantastic Halloween and stay safe whatever you are doing.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy Friday - Spooky
Moo Mania and More - Halloween
Cards and More - Halloween
Tuesday ThrowDown - Spooktacular
Eclectic Ellapu - Dark / Dramatic
