Spooky Street Halloween Card

Spooky Skies for Halloween!

Today I'm sharing a fun Halloween card I created using our Spooky Street stamp set! I took mini distress ink pads and squished them onto a craft mat and then pulled my cardstock through it until I had the background color I wanted. After it dried I added some water droplets to get the lighter spots. I love how distress ink reacts again to water after it's dry!

Once my background was dry I stamped several trees from the Spooky Street stamp set along with some stars and bats. I used black archival ink to do this. Then I added on a small strip of purple and black striped paper and some Halloween word washi tape.  I also stamped the "Happy Halloween" sentiment, also from the Spooky Street stamp set and added it on with a little flagged edge. I love how this turned out! So perfect for Halloween!
