Trick or Treat

Hello, Crafters! I am starting this week with a little Halloween card inspired by Two Old Bats Halloween challenge; I love the colors on the inspiration board this month. I paired a Tim Holtz stamp set(Haloween Cutouts) with a Visible Image set(Into the woods).. I used Bristol smooth cardstock as I find Distressed Oxides to blend the best on this paper. The oxides I used were: Pine Needles, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, and Tumbled Glass. The moon is White Gesso that I dried with an embossing gun to get it to bubble to create the moon’s craters. Some details were added with gold, white and orange gel pens along with some white and grey pastel pencils.

Halloween is an opportunity to be really creative!

  1. I really love this! It’s a great pairing of stamps, beautiful background blend, and I’m intrigued by the creative way in which you made the moon. I like the orange glow on the Jack-o-lantern’s face, too. I’m so glad to see you at our Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge! Thanks for playing along!
