Witching Hour

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are you?

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu

This weeks theme is 


Now as you know I am not a fan of Halloween, but after making gift cards, gift tags and sweetie bags, I thought it was time I made an actual Halloween Card. 

Now the card is a little over 5x5 

I used my Black soot distress ink to change the colour of the card from the standard cream to the black. 
The next layer was cut down a quater of an inch, coloured in with a purple promarker and mounted onto the card.

The main layer of the card has again been coloured using dress ink "black soot" I was looking for a wispy night look to it, so wasn't going 100% perfect on the blending as I wanted texture to the card.  I created my "moon" by cutting out a small circle and temporary adhering it to the layer before putting the ink on, and then I pealed the “moon" away leaving the white look. 

I used a white ink pad and a star stamp and added a few stars to the back ground. 

All my images have been cut from the cricut. I cut three bats, a cat, a witch, and a picket fence. I coloured the bats, witch and cat in with a black promarker to make them stand out, but left the fence white for additional detail. 

I finished the card by adding a ribbon and a bow to the picket fence. 

The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:

A Gem of a Challenge - Halloween -  25/10
Crafty Calender Challenge - Halloween - 2/11
Craftitude - Anything Goes/Spooky - 2/11

Anyway I hope you like the card, and I will be back soon.
