A little Hello-ween
Hey Crafty Friends,
Too early for Halloween cards? It's never too early to be prepared for any occasion! These stamps from Sweet November Stamps don't get enough love in my stash and when I saw this ink blend from a recent class at the Card Maker Success Summit I just knew it would make a great background for these Hello-weens.
1. Take a stitched rectangle and die cut from your favourite card stock for blending. I'm using PaintON card stock today, this is my my fave ink blending card stock
Tip: get your ink layers down first roughly and then repeat the ink colours over the top to create a more vibrant look. You can even repeat a 3rd time to get the vibrancy you like.
3. Spritz or splatter some water on your background and tap dry with kitchen towel to create some texture in the background

I hope I've inspired you to use something from your stash you haven't used for a while!
Until next time, happy crafting!
