Scary without you

Hello, hello! Today I'd like to share a Halloween card made with a new Penny Black stamp set--Scary Halloween. I was planning to make a Polaroid, but the image went way beyond the frame, so it became a regular sized card. I hope it still looks like a Polaroid.


 

I ink distressed a square piece of cardstock with Black Soot, Pumice Stone, and Orange Marmalade distress inks and water splotched it for a spooky sky.

The main image was stamped and colored with Copics. A few bats from this set were stamped flying off in the distance as well as the perfect sentiment to the owl's expression.

Gray cardstock was embossed with Cracked, a Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder and the spooky cute owl and Polaroid frame were attached. My first Halloween card for the year is done!

Our kitchen renovations are well under way and you're welcome to go here to see pics of an almost completed project. I'll be sharing a photo of the finished kitchen here on my blog when it's all done and pretty.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great, crafty week!

Stamps: All Penny Black
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Ranger distress ink
Other: Copics, Sizzix embossing folder, dimensional adhesive
