Haunted House

I do believe I got carried away sponging all of these backgrounds. They are a bit spooky and creepy. I added a few die cuts and stamped a bit to celebrate Halloween. Boo! What do you think?

   Sweet Home
   Grateful Greetings
   Year Round Fun II

   Basic Black A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), Scraps
   Daffodil Delight Scraps
   Pumpkin Pie Scraps

   Archival Basic Black
   Cajun Craze
   Daffodil Delight

   Die Cutting

   Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies

First, I sponged my background from the bottom up: Tip Top Taupe, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Night of Navy.

Next, I stamped the fence across the card front.

I then stamped and die cut the house. I attached it using dimensionals.

I then stamped and die cut a ghost. It was also attached with dimensionals. 

I stamped and fussy cut three pumpkins on Pumpkin Pie scraps. I added these to the lower right-hand corner with adhesive and dimensionals.

I then stamped the sentiment and a couple of bats.

Lastly, I adhered the other Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. You're right about those sponged backgrounds - creepy feeling! They look great, and so does the whole card!

  2. Wowza great sponging on that BG and super fun Halloween card. I love sponging BGs because the colors and combinations are endless.

    1. Yes! I agree, plus sponging is just FUN! I don't think you can mess it up at all. I appreciate your time and thoughts. Have a happy week.
