31 Nights of Halloween - Night 27

Hi, it's Candice with you this evening!  I really hope you all have been enjoying the daily dose of Halloween on the Whimsy Blog this month and have been inspired to create!  I am going to continue the Halloween fun today by sharing a Happiest of Haunts slimline card with you!

I began my card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits perfectly into the size 9A envelopes.

I first stamped the Happiest of Haunts stamp and heat embossed in black along the bottom of my card.  I then stamped it again on masking paper and trimmed to mask the image. 

Next, I created the background using Rusty Hinge, Ripe Persimmon, Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw.  I splatter it with black and white paint using a damp paint brush and then removed the mask.

While I let that dry, I die cut the bats from grey and black velvet paper and the moon & stars from gold foil paper.  The moon I created by cutting twice with a stitched circle die.

I water colored the images with Tombow markers and Copic markers for her skin.

To finish the card, I added the layered Halloween with purple velvet as the top layer.

I hope you and your kids are all ready for Halloween in a few days and maybe feel inspired to create one last Halloween card before putting it all away until next year!

Happy Halloween to all my crafty friends, and I will see you next month as we begin all our scrambling to get our Christmas cards done!
