Beth’s Halloween Greetings

I wanted to share this Halloween card with you. I made it for Beth. I thought she might enjoy one of my creep-tastic creations!

I started of crinkling the corner of the card for some dimension. Then, I sprayed it with the 3 Halloween Glimmer Mists. Jack O’ Lantern, Haunted Shadow, and Raven. I wanted to give the effect of a sunset, so I sprayed the Jack O’ Lantern first, shooting it horizontally, then the Haunted Shadow, and last the Raven. I dabbed on some Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger), then I added Amazing Glaze (JudiKins) to the outer edge of the card.

On a separate piece of paper, I stamped the crow and fence image (from Inkadinkado), sprayed it with Jack O’ Lantern, tore the edges and then inked it with Plum Wine (Ancient Page from Color Box). Next I pop dotted the piece on to the card.

But I thought that it still needed a little something…………

A little creepy spider. He’s also from Inkadinkado. And it was just the right little something that I needed to add. Well, Beth said she really liked the card, which made me very happy. So? Inspired to make something creepy? Well, pull out your Glimmer Mists and start spraying!!!
