Simon Says: Halloween/Spooky!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Halloween/Spooky! The design team is featuring Echo Park products, it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I used a mix of fun Halloween products for my card - the fantastic sentiment "Haunted Halloween Word Die Set" and stencil "Spider Cobwebs" are by Echo Park. I started by priming my stencil with Versamark ink, I then added two sided tape to my base panel and place the stencil on top.

I then spread my purple glitter to the taped panel and burnished it in with my bone folder.  I removed my stencil (the Versamark makes this so easy) leaving an area to spread my black glitter and then I burnished the entire panel.  I love the effect it gives and by burnishing the glitter it stays glued super well.

I pulled out some older Lawn Fawn Halloween sets colored in my haunted house, pumpkin and ghost with Copics.  I die cut the Lawn Fawn fence die from their last release and added some glitter embossing to the dark grey cardstock.

I then die cut my Echo Park Spooky Halloween sentiment and used it as a guide to place my elements on the card panel. Once that was all glued, I adhered the sentiment. I finished off by adding some white gel pen detail to my images!
