AC - 31 Days of Halloween ....

.....  It's the start of the creepiest bloghop of the year - welcome to 31 Days of Halloween which is organised by Smeared Ink.  As part of the Airless Chamber EDT, it's my pleasure to start us off.  I have a fun and rather spooky Halloween card today:

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Fun House Carnival de la Nuit; Waltzingmouse - Midnight Feast; Recollections - Haunted
Inks: Memento - London Fog; Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Die-namics - In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Black; Copic Markers; Staedler - Triplus Fineliners; Wink of Stella - Clear; White Embossing Powder; Clear Embossing Powder

I think this Fun House is really spooky, fully of skulls and ghosts and with a mad demons on top of the building.  I printed the image on white card and coloured it with Copic markers, Staedler Fineliners and added sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  I used lots of neon on the fun house to give a feeling of madness.  I used a stitched die cut to cut out the image, stamped the sentiment in black and embossed with clear powder.  I finished the image by adding a night sky and ground. I made the base from black card - it's a large card, measuring 5" × 7".  I stamped a skeleton and skeleton hands in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.  I attached the finished image to the card with dimensional tape.  On the inside I cut a panel of white card and simply stamped another skeleton.

Here's a close up photo showing the sparkle on the skeletons and ghosts - it looks fabulous in bright autumn sunlight!!  I find that taking the picture slightly out of focus actually allows the shimmer to show up better.
