Beware, crafters! It’s a bit disturbed down here in the South! Ghostface welcomes you to this eerie creation! He would like to know, “What’s your favorite scary movie?” You can’t answer??? Run, don’t look back!!!
I am still inspired by the SSS “Inspired by a movie” challenge. This is my very first time using Rupert! Doesn’t he make a fabulous Ghostface???? Ahhhhh… not a horror fan? me too!!! But this is what happens when you want a Halloween card and DD16a and DD16b’s help. LOL! DD16a is responsible for Ghostface’s knife and DD16b is responsible for Ghostface’s mask. I thank them so much!!! So, for the unintimidated that made it this far, here are the supplies and directions!

Cut the watercolor card stock down to 5.0″ to 7″. Using the sprays, add color to your watercolor paper until you are happy. Allow to dry or dry with a heating tool. Cut black, black-black, and black metallic (appears silver in the photo) from the Rupert die sel. On the background stamp the Halloween Tiny Text using Candied Apple distress oxide ink and then Barn Door Archival Ink offset by “a little” to the background. Allow to dry. Stamp the house, clouds, and moon in Archival Hickory Smoke to the background. Make the knife and mask out of Nina’s solar white cardstock. Apply silver watercolor paint to the knife and cut a small sliver of brown cardstock to function as the handle. Glue them together. Add “blood” using red sealing wax to the knife and the sides of the card. Glue the knife to Rupert’s hands. Trim the black cardstock with Tim Holtz’s Deckle trimmer. Glue everything together. Mat with apply to a red card blank.
