By The Light Of The Moon by Lynne Moncrieff




Sharing my final Halloween card.


Oxford Impressions  Wicked (moon), Trick or Treat (girl, calendar, branch, Halloween, pumpkin, raven), Halloween Party (Trick or Treat, cat)
Distress Inks:- Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain
Kraft Cardstock A4 
Idea-ology Ring Fastener
Silicone Glue
Walnut Ink Crystals (substitute with Distress Stain or Re-inker in Walnut Stain)
Invisible Thread
Scrap of rusted fabric and stained lace rose



Stain the Kraft cardstock the same as for the two previous Halloween cards I have shared here by applying dissolved Walnut Ink Crystals (or substitute) to the Kraft cardstock. Work with a very wet solution apply heat with the heat gun and at the same time, continually mist with water. Repeat this stage as often as you like.   

Tear two panels from the cardstock. Stamp branch, Trick or Treat, leaf and Halloween with Distress Inks. Mist with water and heat set. 

Abrade edges with blunt scissors (or Distress Tool) then apply Rust Effect embossing powder.

Prepare white and Kraft cardstock by staining white cardstock with dissolved walnut ink crystals and applying Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade to Kraft cardstock.

Stamp all elements with Distress Ink Walnut Stain, inking and distressing edges. 


Create tall cardbase with white cardstock. Insert Ring Fastener to top corner. Attach moon with invisible thread and dangle from the Ring Fastener.


Assemble card, adhering some stamped elements with silicone glue.


Until next week
