Vintage Halloween Words

For someone who dislikes spiders so much I tend to use quite a few of them on Halloween cards.  This was a simple one to create.  The black patterned paper is Nightfall by Memory Box.  

To create the focal image, I stamped the Halloween Words first by loading the stamp with VersaMark then StazOn Black ink before stamping it onto a piece of Whisper White.  The image was embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun. 

Next, I sponged Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie and Dusty Durango.  The edges were torn with a tearing tool and sponged with Distress Black Soot.  To add some sparkle I sprayed a little Tsukineko Gold Shimmer Spritz over the sponged background.  I like how the fonts are different on these words and didn't want to cover them up.

The spiders were cut from Basic Black paper using the new Memory Box dangling spider die.  Tsukineko Sparkle Shimmer Spritz was added to them.    

Here is a peek at the inside.

Everything was mounted to a black onyx card.  The finished size is 4.75" x 4.75".  Since I have been slacking with posting my Halloween cards the next week will be filled with spookiness!  I'll be spending the weekend away from the computer as I need to cut back the gardens and rake leaves.  Have a great one!

I think spiders are fine as long as they are on a card. I love the embossing and sponging on your card. So cute!

This card is fantastic as usual, Donna. I love the wording. I don't like spiders at all either.
