Halloween card #9

Hello everyone, I went MIA for few days as I am very busy at the moment, but back now with another Halloween card as I am waiting for more material to be shipped to my door. This card started with a piece of mixed media paper sprayed with purple Distress Oxide by Tim Holtz, oxide is my favorite, it reacts with water so I can lift some color just by wetting the paper and using simple paper towel or a cloth. I did cut another piece of mixed media paper stained prior to this job as I was experimenting making my own aged looking paper. As I stated before I am very new to this new hobby/job, I do my best to learn everyday. As everything started to dry as I glued the two big pieces together, I gathered some material to play with! In the third picture, you can see some of the cut outs and ephemera from Tim Holtz collection I have. I stitched the two cards together with my sewing machine. I took a small piece of crafts card and sprayed it with some orange Distress Oxide and the edges of the big card and went all around with Vintage Photo Distress ink to give it a vintage look, I did this to all the pieces on this card. I stamped cobwebs and bats with soot Distress ink and embossed them with purple embossing powder. On a white piece of mixed media paper I stamped a pumpkin and fussy cut it after I embossed it then colored it with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink and Old Paper Distress ink for the stem, I glued it to the card with two double sided sticky dots after it dried completely. Stitching the small craft card on one side of the card I wanted to appear like a small second card to be opened, under that I glued and used a paper fastener to adhere to the card, embellished the front with some ephemera and stamped the word “RIP” from StamperAnonymous alphanumeric stamps I have bought at the beginning of this endeavor ! Embossed that one too with purple embossing powder. The cloud at the top is from StampersAnonymous too. Just another simple card as I waiting patiently for my material to come in, still learning and using my imagination as much as I can with what I have in the house. Happy making, I hope you like it!
