Twick or Tweet!


 I love making Halloween cards and made another one from a few snippets found in my stash. The stenciled panel was done with a Tim Holtz shattered stencil a looooong time ago, and got thrown into the unfinished box. It looks like it was sponged with distress inks of red, orange and brown, but I'm not certain. the black raven was done with a GMD die, and I dotted it's eye with a white gel pen. The orange panel was embossed with a spiderweb ef and the jack 'o lantern border was done with an old EK punch. The image panel was done with a long-retired SU! stamp called "twick or tweet" and I colored the skeleton with fluorescent Copics, and colored the background with another fluorescent Copic marker; then die-cut it with a MFT stitched square die. After I colored the background of the image panel, I colored a strip of white cardstock with the same Copic marker and put it behind the punched pumpkin border. I added a tiny spider die-cut with a TE die and added a pre-printed SSS sentiment with a little sticker on the end.

I'm sharing this with these challenges:





Since everyone is wearing masks these days, making Halloween cards all year long seems like a logical idea to me! 😊 Gotta roll with the flow, right? I will probably box them up and send them to Cards for Hospitalized Kids later this year (IF they're still accepting them) since I have no little ones to send them to anymore.

Take good care and keep your sense of humor while you have a fantastic day!

It's really a fun card with that image, Carol! And such superb design with all the different elements, textures and details! You put all together wonderfully! It seems that masks are good for your mojo :D LOL
In Italy we wear masks by a year and it's very boring and mojo-killing...
Hugs and have a lovely week!
