I have always loved Halloween. Probably because my birthday is the day after, and my Mom was always very creative with out costumes (she could sew). So, I love the new Halloween images we have in the store now.
For this card, I used the new It's a Scream Halloween
image on the front (inside I have the new Scary Skull
and Deco Happy Halloween
). I used THIS
fun flag as my inspiration - it was part of the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I wanted my card to look like the flag was on the porch of one house looking over at a haunted house.
Since my inspiration was a fun chalk skull flag with a black wood background, I white embossed our Wood Grain background
image. The inspiration flag had some scrolling flowers so I used the DRS Flower Scroll
image on the side and bottom of the piece and embossed them too. To make my background, I used the Silhouette Haunted House
on my Ink, Spray, and Smash background (I used Tangerine ink from SU! mixed with a bit of Red Barn distress ink). The skull is a Jolee's Sticker. To get a spookier look, I sponged on some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Black Soot.
Hope you are starting to get a bit cooler weather. It is still very hot here and hard to think about sweaters, pumpkins, and costumes.
