Halloween Cards 2017

Happy Halloween!
I made my own distress ink sponged backgrounds for cards this year.
Also fussy cut my own bats and ghosts drawn from home made templates.

Used Michael Strong's oval alphabet set to spell "BOO".

Added white eyes to my larger bats with a Jane Davenport White Paint Over Pen
Used a Gelly Roll White 08 gel pen for my small bats eyes.

Used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers (water brush markers filled with dye based ink) and an aqua brush on scraps of "watercolor like" paper for these backgrounds.  Trees drawn by hand with brown mermaid marker. Used black PITT marker for ghost face.

Added a background script stamp here.

...and a background screen stamp here.

For a friend's Halloween Birthday

Quick cards made with printed papers with handwritten 
"Happy Halloween"

Distress Inks used: mermaid lagoon, stormy sky, black soot, pumice stone, carved pumpkin, fired brick, twisted citron, walnut ink, fossilized amber, scattered straw, seedless preserves.

Versafine Black Onyx ink

Michael Strong, Hero Arts, Posh Impressions and unknown

Great cards. The little bats would be cute with googly eyes.

Wow- your cards are fabulous! I love the scenes with bats with white eyes and the trees and the MS 'BOO'! You have been busy! Also love your last cards too! Bringing back memories with the screen stamp over the background!
