MFT August Release Countdown--Day 4

Welcome back to My Favorite Things August Release Countdown!

This month Birdie Brown has Halloween covered with Fab-Boo-Lous Friends--
an assortment of tiny ghosts and goblins with some very punny sentiments!

I couldn't resist their cuteness and made two cards for today's countdown.
The first card uses the set with the new Stitched Collage Frame.

I started off by stenciling a spooky sky with the Stencil Mini Cloud Edges and
Distress Oxide inks on watercolor card stock, then trimmed it with the rectangle
element from BP24. The frame was cut from Latté card stock and adhered over
the inked piece, then adhered to a Kraft card base.

Then came the fun--stamping, coloring, and cutting the adorable little ghosts
and goblins, and adhering them inside the frame. The sentiment was white
embossed and I finished off the card with white star sequins.

My second card a simple one layer panel. Several images were white embossed
on watercolor card stock, then ink distressed with Distress Oxides and misted
lightly with water.

Using a waterbrush, I "took away" some of the color for a bit of interest.
The panel was cut with the rectangle element from BP 24 and adhered to
a Primitive Cream card base, then finished off with sequins.
