Spooky Nights

Hello and Welcome
This month at A Colorful Life Designs, we are showing some Halloween fun stencils.
New for this month is the Interactive Drippy Ghosts stencil.
I paired it up with some older released stencils for my spooky card.  

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it onto my Make Art Station.  I placed the Pumpkin Patch stencil along the bottom of my panel and then inked with some Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink.
  • I removed that stencil and placed the large Fancy Web stencil over the background and inked with Black Soot DOX ink.  I splattered with water to lift some of the colour and set aside to dry.
  • While that dried, I stenciled one of the little ghosts from the Drippy Ghosts stencil wish a bit of Weathered Wood DOX ink and fussy cut it out.
  • Next, I stamped the spider and the sentiment using my Misti.
  • I added a bit more of the Black Soot DOX ink along the edges to give a more 'spooky' look.
  • I glued the stenciled panel onto a piece of black cardstock and then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • Lastly, I used some foam tape to pop up the little ghost over to the side.

Here are the stencils I used:
