I'm Here for it - Spooky Season!

September 1st is actually like a MONTH into when I think we should start celebrating Halloween, honestly. WE ARE LATE! I'd also like Halloween to extend all the way up to December 23rd - I said what I said! It's too short!

Tonight I'm doing all the Halloween things. I've tried for three years to befriend a crow and I'm clearly doing something wrong. So instead, I'm making a crow card!! I used the new detailed Halloween dies (sadly the detail on the moon doesn't show in my photo, but it has embossed details like the crow), and on the crow, I lightly rubbed it with white paint after die cutting to get a moon glow. The cute as heck sentiment and die are from the spiderweb set - I love how BIG they are. The background is a brayer cleaning sheet from a Gel Press session.

I used a similar process on the amazing layering detailed dies - I die cut them from black cardstock and rubbed white paint on them. The skull is popped up with foam so it's dimensional. This has such an Edgar Allen Poe feel. The background uses the cover die that's part of this release and I brayered my fave neon green paint over it, and lightly rubbed on white paint here and there for a distressed look. Does this not look like a creepy parlor??

Alright - FINE - I made ONE non-Halloween card with the new fall goodness. These are also detailed botanical dies with embossed detail. I watercolored them and then splattered them with gloss sprays and added Hero Pearls in gold. The background is the new sort of Moroccan style cover plate die, cut with this fabby pink glitter paper (this glitter paper is EXACTLY the color of my fave Dior lipgloss) over a panel cut with the Waves cover plate.
