12 Days of Halloween Day 1

Hi there crafty friends!  Long time no blogging.  I took an extended absence due to the birth of my daughter.  Life hasn't gotten any less crazy, but I am making an effort to set aside some "me" time.  I have always wanted to do a Halloween card series, so this year I decided to go for it. So without further ado here is my project for Day 1!

I created an A2 card base with Black Licorice cardstock.  I then layered a piece of printed paper from the Fall Fest Prints collection.  I made a background piece from watercolor cardstock "smooshed" onto an acetate sheet with watered down Silks in Citrus Cooler and Sour Lemon.  Once it was dry, I adhered it to the card base.  I placed a strip of Black Licorice Sparkle tape in the lower right along with a strip of Washi from the Sweet Romance Tape set (free Bloom Benefit).  Finally I placed a strip of wishing stars down.  I made a messy nest of Black Licorice Journey Thread and adhered that on top of the strips.  I then used my silks to splash on top of the card.  While that was drying, I stamped one of the images from the Halloween Silhouette stamp set with clear sticky ink onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I fussy cut around the image and adhered it onto the card with foam squares.  Finally I added some gems from the Sea Stones pack.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and will come back this week for Day 2!
