Halloween Card 2017

Hi there

Every year I make a Halloween card for my daughter - she'll be 29 next month. She loves Halloween and really gets into the spirit of it. She used work as an actress in the London Dungeons attraction, so you can imagine what things she used to wear. Lol

Anyhow I thought I would share the card I made for her this year. I used My Favorite Things 'Witch Way Is The Candy' stamp set and some pop up dies from Elizabeth Crafts. The background was created using a variety of different distressing inks, and the images were coloured with Copics.

The above picture shows the band I created to slide over the card base to keep it closed.

Distressing Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Black Soot (and a little Spiced Marmalade & Mustard Seed)
