Halloween Scenes Card with Ghostly Masking

This card is all about the new Halloween Designer Paper with the cardstock and the matching seasonal mask.   Do you see the ghostly swirls on the pumpkin cardstock?  

These masks are 4 for $6 and I think I'll use these all fall with holiday projects, as I see all kinds of cute ideas for the snow (top left) and stripes (bottom right).  Today I used the swirls (bottom left) as they look ghostly to me 

Place the mask on the card and if you wish secure with post it note tape. Cover your surface as it will get inky around the edges.   With the sponge brayer or a regular sponge, roll the brayer on the ink pad 2-3 times and then roll it on the card.  Layer on the color, you can see my practice piece in the middle is darker and my card on the left is lighter.  I did it lightly so it looks ghostly!   

Brayering is easy, and sometimes you’ll think that the brayer doesn’t have any ink on it but it does!  

Remember you can always add color but you can’t take it away!!

Add the Designer Paper 1 x 5 ½ along the left edge.  I used the bat paper from Halloween Night.   

Cut the black cardstock  2 ¾ x 4 ¼  Add the designer paper of Halloween Houses 2 ¼ x 4 ¼  on the black and adhere to the card.  I added a rhinestone in the window.

Stamp the greeting from the single large stamp “Halloween Treat” and cut out just Happy Halloween.   See the tag on the right -- that's the whole stamp.  I'll be using this single stamp a lot (it's good deal for $11 as really you get 3 stamps in 1 with all the cut out options.

Adhere the greeting to  a piece of black 3 ¼ x ½  with pennant ends and I’d add dimensionals (why not?!) and then decorate with Halloween dots.  Add the twine with a bow.
