Halloween To Die For


It's a fabulous Halloween theme starting today at A Vintage Journey - this time the choice of Anne (I haven't met Anne but she seems to be a dear, kind lady and of course a superb crafter.)

I decided on a simple, little triptych with lots of embossing and die cuts. I used orange card and highlighted the embossed areas with black soot DI and the black card was highlighted with an orange archival ink - I love this effect

Here are a few more piccies of each panel:



All finished off with some died cheesecloth.

Do pay a visit to A Vintage Journey where you can be guaranteed some fabulously spooky inspiration from the team.

I would like to add my latest Halloween creation into the following challenges:

Happy Friday everyone and thanks for visiting.

    1. Hi - so sorry I cant remember! It was made a few years ago now... I think it was a die I borrowed at a crop - so not much help !
