Happy Haunting!

Witching Graphic

I am so excited about today’s set! I love Halloween! Everything about it…the costumes, the candy, all the scary and fun stuff!

Witching you a Happy Halloween is a wonderful collection of fun vintage style images from Flourishes designed by Marcella Hawley. This first card showcases three of the fun images from this set.

DPK_SneakPeek_halloween

The images were all stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copics. The hat and pumpkin were cut out and popped up on the main panel that the shoe was stamped on. The panel with the boot already on it was spritzed with Glimmer Mist in Graphite before the images were added. I created the tiny paper flower on the hat by punching several tiny flowers and fixing them with a brad before spraying them with water and crinkling them up. Not my idea, I got it from a Magnolia magazine. Only problem with this was that the black dye in this paper actually ran and stained my fingers! It was thin, low end paper that I like to use for matting and applications such a this when a thick paper would not have worked on such a tiny piece. The fun patterned paper is from a Halloween paper pad by Recollections.

DPK_SneakPeek_Broom

Here I just used the broom which was also colored with Copic markers. I also used Prismacolor pencil in Periwinkle with oms to shade around it. A touch with a Stardust Gelly Roll pens added soft sparkle. The patterned paper is from Making Memories. I stamped the black back panel with a flourish from the set and embossed it with black ep. I trimmed part of a larger pearl flourish embellishment and decorated the corner. I also added a piece of gorgeous black May Arts Silk ribbon and added another tiny flower. It was very hard to photograph the all the black on black, but trust me, it’s all there!
