Halloween Beauty (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a card made with some of this months new stamps. We've got  two A5 stamp sets with a Halloween theme and I've used some of them on this card. The stamps are called 'Put a spell on you' and 'Hocus Pocus', you can find them here

I've used stamps from both new sets to make this card. I began by blending Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint on to a shaped card blank and then overstamped with the bats from Hocus Pocus using Black Archival Ink

I stamped the beautiful image from 'Put a spell on you' with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with Graph'It markers before blending distress inks around the image and stamping on the sentiment. 

I added some embellies and a postcard from Graphic 45 and then got busy colouring a heap of paper flowers with distress inks. I layered all the paper flowers up, misted them with water and scrunched them up. Once they were dry I added a little black enamel accents to the center of each. To finish off I've added a black bow topped with a button and some twine.

My teamies have come up with some beautiful projects to inspire you as always so keep popping back for a peek
