Halloween Poem

This is the first Halloween card I’ve made this year.  It’s for my grandson, who will be 12 on Halloween, and I thought he might like this catchy little verse and the pumpkin with the     luminous eyes and mouth.  I used a Bugaboo digi image – Halloween Poem – for this card.   I distressed the centre paper – first rubbing it with glycerine and then adding orange       Distress Ink, and when it had dried I printed the poem image onto it.  I distressed the            yellow paper in the same way – to get the colour I wanted.  I went over the spider’s legs with a black biro and embossed their bodies with black embossing powder. The spider’s webs were glittered with a glue pen and Glamour Dust.  I decoupaged the pumpkins and put Glossy Accents on the eyes and mouth of the lantern.  The cat is from Clip Art and the pumpkin charm is from Live and Love Crafts – with a make up remover pad, coloured with yellow ink, behind it – so the eyes shine thru.


I would like to enter my card into these challenges –
