Happy Hauntings

Hi and welcome to my blog! First I want to say how thrilled I am to have been chosen to be on the Just For fun design team! I have had so much fun playing with my new stamps. I can't believe that Halloween is will be here soon. Many of the stores have had Halloween items out since July! I have made a Halloween card using two of the new Just For Fun stamps.

On this card I used the Just For Fun large Spooky Scarecrow and the Crooked Iron Fence stamps.
I colored the scarecrow using my Zig watercolor pens, fussy cut the image and pop dotted it to the card. I stamped the fence using versa mark ink and added black embossing powder to make it look like wrought iron. I added three confetti bats flying across the "moon."

I had a fun time using my new small round geli plate to make the background. I patted distress ink pads in yellow, blue, purple and black directly onto the geli plate. I spritzed the inks with water and placed the card stock on top and pressed gently with my hand. This gave a moon like image to the card! I then went back in and sponged black ink around the "moon."

This month we have a new inspiration challenge on the Just For Fun blog. We would love to have you enter the challenge and you will even be eligible for a prize! Click here to check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Such a neat card! I really like the background you got with the circle gelli plate. Also, the scarecrow is perfectly placed in between that cool spooky fence. Great inspiration card! TFS!

That background is the BOMB! I love how vibrant the colors are in your scarecrow, those markers may end up in my wish list. FABULOUS card April!
