Merry Hallowe'en

This is a two card post!


For the first card, the background sentiment is stamped on patterned paper and coloured with distress markers, then matted and layered onto more patterned paper and purple cardstock. The leaves are those wooden elements from Kars coloured with distress inks and stuck onto the card with Pinflair. Little kitty is a smaller version of the free image I use a couple of days ago, and the spider is just diecut from black card.

This scarier card has a triple stepper design:


The hanging sign is diecut from foamboard and covered with patterned paper cut to size by hand to leave a border of foamboard showing. The card panels are covered in similar patterned paper and all the surfaces are overstamped with Hallowe'en images using black archival ink. The sign is positioned to cover the skeleton's modesty :-)
