Halloween Creatures card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "All Creatures Great and Small".

Tomorrow it's Halloween, just a perfect timing for a final Halloween card, the last of the season. I started with the background, and I've used Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet and Twisted Lemon Distress Oxide. This time I used the Oxiees with the blending tool. It gives such a nice muted effect. I've added a few extra layers with the same colors to create more intensive colores.


For the Halloween creatures, I used the spider of the Undertaker set and the owl of the Mini Halloween #3 set. I placed the owl in the frame. Because the owl stamp is bigger than the frame, I've made a mask to protect the frame. The Drip Edge is turned into some slime.
