Halloween Village

>> Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Is the weather changing already where you live?  Friday it was a hot and humid 91 degrees and then a big storm come through and instantly the weather changed.  Since then we've had sunny days, about a high of 74 and no humidity! The Fall-like temps are here and by next weekend the high is only supposed to be 60! This kind of weather definitely gets me in the mood for apples, cider, pumpkins and pie! Can't forget the ghosts and goblins too!

This card shows off the new Silhouette Spooky Village (141H) from DRS Designs.  I added a bit of color with Copic Markers and then used the Accent Bats (517A) and the Halloween Arc (043E) to complete the scene. The edges were distressed to give it a spooky feel and my focal image was complete.  I created the card front using orange cardstock--the top was dry embossed and the bottom was stamped with the Large Original Plaid (641P) maker stamp. I layered it with yellow cardstock and then with a back panel that was adhered with a single yellow brad at each end.  The stamped image was adhered in place as shown and then the card front was adhered to a black cardstock base.  Finished card size is 5.5" x 4.25."

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
