Spooky Halloween

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.   

Chocolate Baroque recently launched three fabulous Halloween sets and while I don't make many Halloween cards I couldn't resist ordering Book of Spells while I was on a break from the DT.  The spider web corner fragment is awesome and I think it would be fun in non Halloween designs as well.



The sentiment is from Bewitched Moonlight and the rest of the images are from Book of Spells.  The background is Distress Inks and I used a lovely stencil by Tim Holtz.   I used Inktense pencils to add a little colour to the haunted house and lots of glitter on the roof and ghosts.     

Thanks for your visit,
Shirleyx

  14. This is lovely Shirley, the colours are gorgeous and the background stamping and stencilling is meticulous. I too think the cobweb fragment could work on lots of cards and I love the house and the bats. A great Halloween card. x

  18. Looks like a fantastic CB set, and these gorgeous colors really set it off very dramatically. Am loving that haunted house and the subtle background you've got showing in places. That cracking would indeed work on other cards rather just Halloween. Sorry to be slow in visiting, but now I'm going to catch up some posts I missed here. Hope you are all settled in your new craft room by now. Hugs & TFS

  28. Hi Shirley - I don't make many Halloween cards either, but I absolutely love this gorgeously spooky creation! Spiders freak me out somewhat, but I think I could cope with these little beauties!
    Your inking is awesome (as ever), and the detail is fabulous!
