Glitz and Glam Halloween

I can't believe I'm doing this ..... a Halloween card!  This is the girl that does not get or like Halloween.  Give me sweet, cute and pretty any day which is why my card is more glam than Halloween 😂

Whimsy Stamps have a mini release being launched today and this Spooky Large Word Die is in the release.   I wanted glitz and glam so cut the word out from black glitter card.  I cut the bat out a second time to add a bit of dimension to the card because it's such a simple, basic card and you can never have enough glitz and glam, yes?

I inked up a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using Distress Oxieds in Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves.  I went in quite heavily with the shading.  I then splattered some water and white gouache on to the panel and once it was dry I die cut it using my favourite Wonky Stitched Rectangles Die Set.

I matted this on to black cardstock before attaching to a white card base and finished off with a few rhinestones on the spider, the web and the bat's eyes.

I'll be back tomorrow with another card from the new release and no, it's not Halloween.  I need to go and lie down in a darkened room after this one, I tell ya!
