On the second day of December...

I still have Halloween to share.  Sad.  I know.  However I really liked how these Halloween cards turned out this year.  I promise it is the last of my bleated Halloween. I used Distress stains, some glitter card stock and a couple of cool Sizzix dies.

This card was created with fired brick and wild honey distress stains.  I put them directly on the paper.  I finished by cutting the bats from the Sizzix bat strip die.

I used ink on this card and sponged it on the entire surface.  I used the technique of flicking water on it to finish the background.  The die cuts all came from the Halloween Silhouettes die.  The glitter paper made it a little tricky to cut out all those details but they turned out really great.

My last card was made with concord grape and faded jeans distress stains.  I stamped the clouds in versa mark and heat embossed with clear before I added the distress stain.  I really like using the stains with embossing resist.  I also finished the background with perfect pearls mist in pearl.

I have some Christmas cards to share and my countdown to Christmas for this year.  So far Mocha has not been able to eat it but we'll see.  She's a crafty little dog.
