Happy Halloween

It's nearly the Bank Holiday weekend! I've just got back from York after a catch-up with fellow DT member Kirsty. Coffee, cake and great company. A lovely way to spend the day.

I know I'm a bit early but when I saw the new owl stamp I couldn't resist making a Halloween card.

The Woodland Stencil makes the perfect background for it. I placed the inner part of the stencil on the card and then used a make-up sponge and black Archival ink to create the outer part of the scene. The tree and owl were then stamped in black Archival.

I used a mask to create the moon, then brayered in the sky with Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress Ink.

My favourite part has to be Lily the witch though.

As I'm useless at drawing, I create a dinky little stencil with my Cameo (the design was bought from the Silhouette Store) and sponged the colour through it.

Annabel and Rosie make good witches too.

The cobweb border was cut on my Cameo and the writing was done with the International Alphabet stencil.

Some Black Soot Distress Ink was applied with a Clarity stencil brush to the base card to dirty it up a bit.

Viola! A Halloween May.
