Hello friends, this card was a lot of fun, as I am experimenting with colors and inks, stamps and embellishments, I am learning new things every week that goes by. The products I have used for this card all come from Tim Holtz collection, I love them. First step was choosing the paper, I have a lot to learn about that too, I have used a mixed media paper , folded in half and glued together, I have sprayed the card with the Distress Oxides for Halloween, orange purple and green, and played with a bit of water on it, after drying it I stitched all around the card with black floss. The stamps applied in the corners are from Stampers Anonymous, you can see I was experimenting with inks by the squares you see in the picture, I am new to this form of art so I am learning as I am going, making mistakes here and there! For the first time ever I have used my Sizzix machine and cut two pumpkins, the two ghosts, the web and the spider on the window frame, I am fixated with windows for some reason, I think they look really cool on a card, adding that depth and dimension to it. I have inked the pumpkins with Distress Black Soot and orange, the two ghosts with Distress Hickory smoke, the cobweb with the same black as the pumpkin, I will list the material at the end of this paragraph. Glued the two ghosts in the middle of the card, in a way that they could be somewhat visible through the window frame, I glued the web and the spider on the window first, let that dry, then added that to the card, glued the pumpkins on the corners of the card opposite to the stamps, added two stamps “HAPPY HALLOWEEN” and “SPOOKY!” at the end, and used embossing powder for texture, same as the other two stamps. Last was the number 31 on the window in the middle.
