Halloween Fun


Hi Everyone, Halloween is fast approaching so I thought for my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs this week it would be nice to share some inspiration with you all.


I decided to make my own inky background. You will notice from the photograph I taped my die cut in place along with the die, applying my Distress Inks and a Web Stencil for depth.


I then went around the perimeter with a Black Fine Liner Pen before lifting my die cut off. This helps to frame your inky detail.


My web I added some ink along with some Rock Candy Distress Stickles, double layering Happy Halloween for a Shadow Effect.


My tree was cut out in White Cardstock, inking the edges and adding Distress Stickles to the Black Cardstock for an eerie glistening effect, off setting my tree I glued in place.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I will be back on Monday with some exciting news to share with you.

  2. Over here we don't 'celebrate' Haloween, although it is getting a bit more popular. But I like your card very much Julie, especially the 'shadoweffects' of it. Great job!!
