Halloween card - haunted house with car

Here I am with the second inspirational project for the September challenge of the Country View Challenges: Planes, trains, automobiles

The first time I created an autumn scene for my vehicles but now a Halloween scene!

Actually, this card is about A5 size because I folded an A4 black cardstock for the base and then I trimmed a thick watercolour paper for creating a few millimetres smaller layer.

Here you can see my background without the glued die-cuts.

For the background, I used DecoArt Americana paints. When it was dry I inked edges with black ink.

What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Haunted House by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Home For The Holidays by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Sizzlits Strip Die, Halloween Shadows by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Bigz Die, Branch Tree by Tim Holtz

Stampers Anonymous, Regions Beyond by Tim Holtz (CMS274)

black embossing powder

DecoArt Americana paints


Ranger Distress ink pads
