Haunting Halloween & Twick or Tweet (again!)


Hi there! Today's card share was created with Haunting Halloween(retired) & the new Twick or Tweet stamp set from the Holiday mini. Pretty much the same details as the last few Halloween cards, only this one also uses the swiss dot embossing folder, although you can get the same results from the SU! texture plate too. I also used the SU! oval punches for the sentiment. Markers were used to colour the image to match the stripes in the designer paper (the Melody papers!) I tried to make the cauldron look old and beat up; I coloured it with Basic Grey, then went over it with Basic Black, which has a purple hue to it. It bubbled up in the center, which makes it look really cool, quite authentic! I then went in with some white reinker and dabbed it here and there for highlights. The oozy stuff coming up out of the cauldron was coloured in Summer Sun, although from the photo it looks quite ghastly and pale. In real life, it looks much brighter!! The circle punches were used for "faux brads".
This card was quick, easy and alot of fun to do. :-) The inside of the card is white with a piece of designer paper along the side, with the sentiment "a happy Halloween" (get it?? ...."witching you....a happy halloween") lol
Thanks for stopping by!

Another nice layout. I like the way you colored your pot/kettle. I think my SU! consultant gave me an old Halloween set with a pot (when you buy a certain $ amount through her, you get a free set that she has extras of). I need to find it, mount the stamps and try it out. Thanks for explaining how you colored it; it turned out GREAT!
