Bone Chilling Halloween

Hi crafty friends! It's Julee Tilman, popping in with a little Jaded Blossom inspiration for your day. I've been loving creating Halloween cards lately, and I've got a bone chilling one for you today.

I usually stay firmly on the cutesy side of the Halloween spectrum, but today's card took a little spookier turn. I started by assembling the witch doctor from the Gnome Dies: Monster Add Ons 2 set. All pieces were cut from cardstock. I colored the black pieces with distress inks and all the other pieces with alcohol markers, adding a few white gel pen accents on the feathers where the embossed veins were.  Once he was put together, I thought it would be fun to have a pile of bones behind him, so I pulled out the Clear Jar: Halloween Add Ons and stamped the pile of bones a couple of times, then colored and cut out to place behind my gnomie.

For the background I stamped a red piece of cardstock randomly with stamps from the Paisley set.  I liked the subtle bit of texture it added.  The black panel is gray cardstock that I stenciled with the Spiderweb Stencil in black ink. I think that's one of my favorite stencils!

The sentiment is from the Bone Chilling Treats set and embossed in white on black cardstock, then cut with the coordinating Outline Dies. To finish things off I created a skull and crossbones with the skull and bone in the Monster Add Ons 2, cutting the two bones in half and gluing them behind the skull.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabuolously creative day!
