Poe by Lynne Moncrieff


Thought I would dip my toes into a Halloween(ish) card.






Supplies


That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils:– Crow Background, Spider’s Web
PaperArtsy Fresco Paints:- Old Gold, Blueberry, Snowflake,
Infusions:- Royal Blood, Black Knight
Staz-on Timber Brown
Extras:- Lucky enough to receive this die cut of Spellbinders Seth Apter Etched Die Set Drip Drop, Jute Ribbon, Lace, Muslin, Tea stained cardstock


Instructions


I had this background leftover from last year, only adding some stencilling but to make the background:-

Tear muslin and layer onto cardstock panel. Apply Blueberry, misting generously with water to blend, incorporating Snowflake. Mix 50:50 ratio of water and Old Gold into mister bottle. Spray onto panel. 

Stencil cobweb onto upper corner with Black Soot ink. Continue to stencil the cobweb but only lightly, a subtle pattern. Stencil crows so they rest onto muslin layer. 










Tea stain cardstock and muslin (the stamped Poe and stained muslin were again leftovers!). Stamp Poe with Timber Brown. Layer to Seth Apter die cut, applying Royal Blood and Black Knight to the die cut and to lace. 






Embellish with jute ribbon and stained muslin.

  3. So beautiful to see close up photos of your wonderful Halloween tag, dear Lynne. I love how you added muslin and your choice of colors, adds extra spooky feelings to your piece.The crows looks also great sitting there on the ground waiting for something to happen. I wonder if I should find my own Haunted stampset :-) . xx
