After my crafting weekend with Dyan Reaveley, I really wanted to make an art journal page, but I didn't have time. So I made a large card instead. I stamped the cobweb border in black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder. Next I stamped the scary old tree, embossed with clear powder and watercoloured it with antique linen. I shaded the background using Distress inks and a blending tool to create an eerie orange sky. I added the date and owl and heat embossed them with clear powder. I stamped all the other elements on white card, coloured them with Copic markers, cut them out and edged them with a black marker. I adhered the skull over Malcolm's face and added a witch's hat. On the inside I cut a mat layer of orange card and added a fun greeting to the white panel.
I used the colours from this week's Colour Q - cQc#312 challenge - they're perfect for a Halloween card.
I know exactly who this card is for - our son Ben. He and his girlfriend, Sophie, are coming over to the States on Sunday for a couple of weeks' holiday. They timed their visit to coincide with Halloween as Northville township really goes all out to decorate for the event. There are skeleton displays all over downtown Northville and the surrounding area and on the night itself, a whole section of town is closed to cars so that the children can go trick or treating! It's a really fun event.
