Happy Halloween!

Hi Everyone! Halloween is almost here. Are you getting ready for those trick-or-treaters? I must say I miss the kids coming by. We live in a cul-de-sac and we don't get any kids in our neighborhood. Here is a Halloween card I made using brand new stamps from Just For Fun!

I made a bokeh background for this card by sponging on several colors of Distress inks, then laying a circle stencil on top and sponging on white pigment ink. I used the CJ-Canning Jar Wire Handle for my cauldron! When I first got my new stamps I immediately thought this was a cauldron but soon found out that it wasn't! I think it makes a good cauldron anyway! LOL! I stamped it and colored it in using a black Sharpie marker. I found some green Liquid Applique to add to the pot and I then added some clear Stickles glitter over it. The Witch Silhouette, Large was stamped in black beside the pot.

I hope you all have a very Happy Halloween!

Wow! This is stunning April. Love your cauldron overflowing with the green goop!! The bokeh background is so clever and makes the black witch just pop!

What a fabulous background! And I LOVE the goo boiling over the top of the cauldron; it looks awesome! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

I adore your groovy background and whatever is bubbling in that "cauldron" looks really creepy! What a clever use of the canning wire...I thought it was a cauldron too!
