Halloween is a fun time of year, getting to break out the dark and creepy crafty products and go outside the norm! I love making a few cards for some Halloween loving friends. For this card I used the following card making supplies:

I started with a panel of Papermilldirect White Hemp card. I chose this for the texture on it as I wanted it to show through when inked over. I then inked it with a layer of Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.

My next ink layer was to blend over some Rusty Hinge to deepen the orange. I was going for a creepy evening sunset.

I then roughly streaked over some Vintage Photo, taking care to not blend too much!

I blended in a bit of Dusty Concord for a little further deepening of the sky.

I used my Silhouette to cut out a spooky house from the Papermilldirect black card. I took a piece of the Intensive Red card and mounted this in behind it to 'light up' the windows a spooky red. I added some scalloped detail to the frame to give the door some detail at the bottom, befitting a haunted house!

I used a torn strip of paper to give an edge to ink along, to give a ground to my panel for my house and tree to sit on. I used Black Soot ink for this.

Once all the ink was dry I added this panel onto a panel of the Plain Black card. I then mounted this onto the Intensive Orange card blank. I love the texture the Hemp card gives inked up and how it looks layered up.

I started adding my elements onto the card. I used foam tape to adhere the house on to give dimension. I added the bats flying in the sky, and added foam tape under their wings to give them a very good flying effect.

I added some red stickles onto the bats eyes, and onto the eyes of the ghost in the house to give a bit more creep factor to the card. I love how it makes the bats eyes look like they are glowing!

The completed card is dark and spooky - just perfect for Halloween!

I added some sparkle to the windows to give some glass like shimmer.

I love how the bats really look like they are lifting right off the card with their evil little eyes!!
