A Distress Stained Halloween Card

Hello Everybody!

Hope all is well!  Happy Labor Day to those who don't actually have to labor on it! ;)

Tonight I made card for Halloween.  I am entering it into the following challenges:

retro sketches #27

Here's my card!  I made the colored papers with white card stock and Distress Stains: spiced marmalade, stormy sky, and bundled sage.  The background paper has all three and then each layer after is each color by itself.

The pumpkin is the resist.  I used clear embossing powder on the Martha Stewart Stamp.  After I heated it, I swiped it through the Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain.  I used a Martha Stewart spider web punch for the bottom of the black layer.  I used Maya Arts twine.

The wings are the 2 bats (I didn't think I had the wings....and then I found these little bats from Cloud 9).  Yay!! :)  The sentiment is a plastic embellishment from Recollections at Michael's.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my tricks--only treats :)
