Time to Spook





Its been so much fun doing this card as we don’t always have reason to do Halloween themed projects, I do have lots of Halloween stash but there lies the problem I still have it which implies I don’t use it!

I started with the SplodgeAway clock mask and taped it to some easy ink card, I added ink using walnut stain, spiced marmalade and blacksoot, i then used a gold sparkle embossing powder on the middle section of the clock, this gave it a very subtle shine, then I mixed some mica with a little water and used a paintbrush to flick it onto the card, this added more sparkle and dimension. This card was then matted onto some ghostly patterned paper and ribbon added, then it was onto the focal point.



I had searched pinterest (which I do daily!) and came across these Halloween images (I will try to find the link and post later), I knew they would be perfect for this card, I printed them onto easy ink card and cut them and arranged them onto my card and then flicked more mica mix onto it. To finish I added the clock hands and gem, and the words Time to spook (this was cut on the cricut, as was the skull and cross bones)
