It’s time for another Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge and this month it’s Ghosts! I’ve create a large 6 x 6 Basic Black card stock base card to share today. The tombstones from the Halloween Scene dies were stamped in Basic Gray ink on Smoky Slate card stock using SU’s Marbled background stamp. The bats and pumpkin are from Halloween Elements and the fence is from Karen’s House & Fence Pop Up. The background is Distressed Oxide inks pounced and sprayed and smooched until I liked the results 🙂 I added black Nuvo drops scattered around the scene.
The inside uses Karen’s Flower Pot die as a big tombstone with ghosts flying out of it! I repeated most of the outside elements to the inside and added some retired Halloween stamps as a greeting.
The ghosts are attached to strips of acetate to make them float. The bricks on the tombstone/flower pot are done with SU’s brick stencil and embossing paste tinted with Smoky Slate re-inker. I went over the bats and pumpkins with Shimmer pen – gotta have glitter!
Have fun checking out all the other spooky creations from the team! Hugs, Fran
