Welcome, today I have been creating a Halloween card.
The background is created with Distress Oxides Twisted Citron and Black Soot, adding layers to get the desired depth.
I then created a mono print using the new Tim Holtz Crossed Layering Stencil and Black Soot Distress Ink.
I stamped the two Ravens with Black Archival and added a few delicate splatters of White Paint. I also added the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Pumpkin Head stamp set.
I love how all the layers are visible adding so much detail to the background.
I added random machine stitching for added texture and also included a Transparent Tile which I stapled into place. This Raven is holding onto a skull bead.
And this Raven is holding onto a spider.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

What a super design and the Twisted Citron on the background gives the wow factor to your card. Love the quirky touch in the ravens beaks.

Love the Twisted Citron And black Soot combo. The ravens look so good with the ornaments hanging from their beaks. Gorgeous! Even though it is Halloween.
