Halloween is just around the corner

Hi everyone,

Halloween seems so far away, but it will be here sooner than you expect. It's one of my favorite themes for projects. Too bad we don't celebrate it here in the Netherlands. To enjoy it as long as possible, I start with it early! And today my first Halloween card of the year. Yesterday I bought a few Dylusions Sprays. I don't have them all yet, but that is just a matter of time. LOL! Luckily I had the right colors for a Halloween background.

Just a few pictures of how I made this card....

As base I used watercolor paper. This goes perfectly with the Dylusion sprays. I removed the excess with a roll of paper towls and dried it with the heat tool.

I just love my new stencil and I made a small ​​leaves border with it. And with a water brush I lightened the color of the leaves. Awesome technique!
Then I created more layers ​​with stencils and paint and with stamps and ink. The letters "Happy Halloween" are printed with my printer (yes, I really did that) and then decorated it with a white pen.

The spider is from Sticky Back Canvas and is cut out with my Silhouette and the skull and the bats are cut out of paper.

With this card, I joining in the fun with Frilly and Funkie, where the challenge is to use canvas. Which my little spider is made of.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
