Quick and Easy Hallowe'en Card

This one is quick and easy if you have a few last minute Hallowe'en cards to make.

"Quick and easy Hallowe'en card"

It's just a piece of black card, folded in half. One half is dry-embossed with a Tim Holtz folder, then the raised surface wiped over with a clear ink pad and various colours of Perfect Pearls brushed on to give some glimmer. Afterwards, the crow and bats are gone over in black promarker to help them stand out more. If you have some scary diecuts, you can add them over the top. I didn't have any, so stamped a couple of scary images onto card using black archival ink, gave them the Perfect Pearl treatment, and cut out with scissors before sticking on the bottom of the card using Pinflair for added dimension.
