Happy Halloween!

With Halloween tomorrow, I thought I would share a couple of Halloween projects using Haunted Halloween, Halloween Treats and Gothic 31! This is not a trick, but could be a treat if you win the random drawing or become one of the Top 3, so just a reminder that there is still one day left to join in the October Monthly Referral Program!
This was such a fun double sided tag to create from mixing up the images to adding ghostly parts!
The beautiful witch was watercolored and masked and Mr. Skeleton clear embossed, before the inking and salting of the background. I started with my darker colors on the bottom and worked up to the lighter colors for the top.
The haunted tree was cut from corrugated cardboard the fence from glassine, then cracked and stained with bits of highlights.
And Halloween is never complete without going a little Batty!
For the coffin I stamped the frame and clear embossed, inked the background, removed the embossing and then crackled up to the frame.
The Lady Skeleton was stamped a second time after inking the background and clear embossed and then inked over in black and again added layers of clear embossing. The edges with colored with Treasure Gold.
Now you have to decorate the inside, which was lined with Tim's Halloween Kraft paper, inked and stamped.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for visiting!

Perfect Halloween makes, Terry - the tags are gorgeous, with such great colour blending in the backgrounds, and that crackly finish on the box is completely brilliant!
