Halloween…

…is approaching (well school did start this week which means summer is coming to an end – hence autumn – hence Halloween. Right???) and I’m having fun making Halloween cards.

Where's my treat kopiera

This is the first card and there are more to come! The stamps are from The Rubber Café  and on this card I used the set Where’s my treat Labrador which contains both the cute dog and the sentiment. The background is the spider web You need to dust. I masked the dog and double stamped the web on both stamped image piece and the background paper. To make the web look a little “wet” it is covered with thin lines of crackle accent. It gives a really neat effect.

The design of the card is inspired by this week’s sketch at Friday Sketchers. The challenge over at 365 cards is to layer stamps. Not mask but layer. Suits me FINE! I don’t have any Halloween patterned papers so I made my own.

Happy HalloweenThe Happy Halloween sentiment and the little cute bat are from the clear stamp set Pumpkin Face Mix-N-Match, I’ve also used Halloween Candy and the pumpkin from the Trick or Treat set.

Back to some work, and cleaning, and washing, and…
