Spooky House

Seem like everyone has made a haunted house card with a big moon behind it...well I, of course, am no exception. :)  There is just something about this little Lawn Fawn house that calls for a big bright moon behind it.  So today's card is another Distress Ink background Halloween card.  I told you I loved Halloween!

I created a purple distress ink panel again using Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves.  The purple of Seedless Preserves is just so rich and yummy!  I used my Perfect Pearls Mist yet again (I warned you I was in love with it) but this time I spritzed my favorite background stamp and stamped the mist onto my background.  You can see it pooled up in a few places and gave me some bigger blobs but that's okay, it just adds to the spookiness.  I cut the circle out using a new Sizzix Framelit die, and colored a panel with more distress ink to place behind the cut out for the moon.  I did try something new on this card.  I cut some grey cardstock in the shape of the ground I wanted and then covered it in Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.  I love the texture it created!  I will be experimenting more with this product in the future.

Thanks for popping in today!  The Halloween fun is far from over, I will have another card to share tomorrow.  And hopefully if all goes well a video before the weekend is over.  Yes, I filmed my first video, but due to some computer upgrading I needed to do it has not yet been edited.  I hope to get it done this weekend because I show how to make another treat bucket, and it happens to be Halloween themed.  Wish me luck!
