It was a place shunned by the people…

Having fun making my Hallowe’en cards, this one features the house image from the Haunted set by Tim Holtz  as well as one of the dies from his Vintage Spirits Thinlits set.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I first made myself a mask with some circle dies and then stamped my image in ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then added in the background colours of Distress Ink to create a night sky.  I went with shades of purple and added in some sequins for embellies to play along with the current board at the Tic Tac Toe challenge (I’ve used the middle row with the free square).

I decided to add in my sentiment using a die cut and the eclipse technique after seeing this featured at the TGIF challenge.  I like how it turned out, adding some extra interest to my fairly CAS card.
