Fantasy Stampers - Fright Night

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is here! We are off to the Isle of Wight for a party. It is a surprise party for an  old friend who we haven't seen for a while, his children have done all the arranging.  We are travelling there with friends so it should be a good weekend.

Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog and the theme is Fright Night (Halloween). I should point out that I don't really do Halloween it makes me rather uncomfortable.


This is a cute little card just 6" x 6". The stamp I used was Silhouette Owl Tree by Little Claire Designs. I did think that if you came across a tree of owls in the night all making a noise it would be rather frightening. 
 I started with a black card blank and I cut all the mats and layers, On the top white mat used a mask I had made and inked the page with my brushes to get the purple where I wanted it I also used a post-it note mask for the moon. 



This I used Black Soot Distress on this little wooden owl. 


The tree was stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a black sparkly powder. The edge round the image was drawn with a Perfect Medium pen and heat embossed with the same powder. 


I do love using silhouettes in my cards they give very dramatic results either die cuts or stamps.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
