Twit a Boo! by Lynne Moncrieff


Another Halloween card to share with you this week.



Oxford Impressions – Wicked (31), Trick or Treat (Boo), Masquerade (spider, small Jack o’lantern, Happy Halloween), Halloween Party (owl, large Jack o’lantern, Trick or Treat, child)
Distress Inks:- Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain
Idea-ology Tiny Attacher
Walnut Ink Crystals (substitute with Distress Stain or Re-inker in Walnut Stain)
Invisible Thread
Scrap of Stained Seam Binding



The first step is the same as for the Halloween card I shared last Sunday.

Apply the 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 Jack o’lanterns, spider, 31 and Trick or Treat with Distress Inks. Mist with water and heat set.

Stamp child and owl onto white cardstock stained with dissolved Walnut Ink to white cardstock scrap. Stamp other elements onto stained Kraft cardstock.

Create a tall cardbase with white cardstock. Adhere largest panel to card front. Compose card attaching the owl with invisible thread so it dangles at the top of the card.


Until next week
