Trick or Treat


A special hello to my newest follower, Tracy Welham!

I made this cute Halloween card for the September Colour Challenge at the Gecko Galz Facebook group. 
Black and Orange are the colours to use.

The lovely little trick or treat girl image is from the Spooktacular collage sheet from Gecko Galz. She was fussy cut leaving a thin white border and attached on foam pads. A second image had the black cat cut out and decoupaged on top of the original image. 

The background is made from distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo) blended together. Droplets of water were applied and blotted to give a water splashed effect. Then the pattern was stamped in Ranger Jet Black ink using a Dylusions Basic Backgrounds stamp. The card was matted onto black card and a thin banner made which was attached on foam pads along the bottom.

The branches and tree were die cut from black card. It is a section of the Bird on a Branch die by Marianne Designs. The sentiment was printed and die cut with a small scalloped square, the edges were inked and it was added on foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today!
