Halloween Spirit – a new Clearly Besotted Challenge!


Hello – today sees a new challenge over at the Clearly Besotted Stamps blog and this time the theme is Autumn/Halloween.  I’ve used the fabulous new Halloween Spirit stamp set to create these two little Halloween cards.

Spirit of Halloween 1

I used distress inks for the backgrounds – LOVE the effect you get with these inks – it’s such a therapeutic process too (I literally spend AGES just adding MORE and MORE ink!!!).  I masked off an area and then used a fine-liner pen to draw a sketchy line as a border.  All of the images are from the Halloween Spirit set and I finished off with a few touches of clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

As always there’s a Clearly Besotted store voucher up for grabs for one lucky winner so get crafting!!
