Haunted House Card


This is Anja again. Today I played with new Halloween dies and made my first Halloween card ever :) Given the fact I only have two Halloween dies I tried to do the most of it. And I had to use my favourite inks again. I made a haunted house scene and a big moon in the background.

For the card I used:
- Distress Oxides (Black Soot, Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves),
- black card base (13,5x13,5 cm),
- watercolor paper (12,8x12,8 cm),
- black and white card stock for die cuts,
- white pigment ink pad,
- water mister,
- paper glue. 

First I die cut the house, phrase and ghost from black and white card stock.

Then I made the background. I colored the night sky with four different shades. I started with the violets on top and then went to black on the bottom.

I cut a circle out of it. 

I colored the moon then. I used a little bit of black on top of the yellow.

Then I spritzed both papers with water. I splashed bigger drops of water on top of the moon background. 

Then I used a bit of yellow around the circle to make it look like the moon is shining. The Oxides are perfect for that. 

And then I just glued all the pieces together and made a little shine to the ghost inside the card. 

And this is my first and simple Halloween card.

Do not forget to check all the new dies. You can still get them with a 25 % discount. 

Enjoy your Sunday and see you again next week.

Your card is a spooky good time! Great idea to cut a circle out and put the moon behind it too. I think you said this was your first Halloween card ever. Nicely done! -Janet
