When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out contagion to this world…



Sharing my final Hallowe’en card today, this one features the other image from the My Best Friends are Witches retired set from Kraftin’ Kimmie.


To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments and used ink to create the various elements.  I swapped out the oval element for my arched window in which I’ve created a suitably spooky scene.  The branches are from Tim Holtz Branch Punch, the bats from stencils and the moon was a bit of scrap I cut a circle from.  I used the circle and twigs as masks, sponged in my background and then stencilled in the bats.  I used another stencil for the stone surrounds of the window.  The shelves, which make up the horizontal element, are a wood grain stencil and the books are cut from some BoBunny paper.

To keep with my witchy theme I swapped the flower embellie for a bottle of bone dust (that’s embossing powder to us mere mortals) and the banner for a spider on a thread.  The Hallowe’en sentiment comes from the same retired set as my image.  That image being a spooky sistah I am entering my card in the current challenge at Naughty or Nice.

As this is very much a Hallowe’en card I am also linking it up over at Crafty Gal’s Corner for their Be Fa-BOO-Lous challenge.
