Happy Halloween, Ghoulfriend

Hey Crafty Friends,

Are you a Halloween crafter? Heffy Doodle recently had a great release and whilst it might seem full on Halloween themed there is a lot of items you can use all year round! Including these adorable ghosts. There is a ton of sentiments in this set with accessories where you can use this set all year round!#

All that being said the first card I'm sharing is halloween themed, I'll send this onto a friend before the month is out!

Card Recipe:

1. Starting with the elm street die cut from oreo crunch card stock and again from white card. You need the outer frame from the black card stock and inner frame from the white card

2. Take the white inner part of the frame and ink it up using carved pumpkincandied apple and Blueprint Sketch. Take some black soot ink and react a small amount with water picked up with a paintbrush to flick onto your background

3. Lay on top the sleepy hollow stencil and ink up with black soot

4. Die cut the tree and house from the die set from the same oreo crunch card stock as your frame. Die cut the additional section for the house from banana split card stock to help light the house windows!

5. Stamp images on alcohol marker friendly card stock with tuxedo black ink and colour in copics. I've added a small shadow to my ghosts using BG10

6. Using a banner die stamp your sentiment and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

7. Adhere your images with adhesive glue

I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration.
