Spooky Halloween

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Halloween is getting closer...time to stock up on the treats for the little trick or treaters. Guess that means me...I don't think they'd care for any of these potions. I'm not even sure what's really in them, but judging from the labels, I'm not going to be doing any taste testing, lol. 

For my spooky card, I started with an embossing folder I just bought & couldn't wait to give it a test drive. Don't know if you've noticed, but these ef's made by Sizzix just seem to emboss way deeper than a lot of other brands. So I had a piece of lavender card stock & I inked up the embossing folder w/ some dark purple pigment ink, put my c/s in & embossed it. Then I took it out, sprinkled it with some sparkly dark purple embossing powder & heat embossed it (aka embossed embossing). Wish you could see is really sparkly!
The potions were stamped, colored with Copics & I fussy cut around the tops before adding a bright orange strip behind them. The ghost & moon were fussy cut & the greeting was split in two...the first line was fussy cut & added below the the potions & the second line was die cut & added higher up. 

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. The embossed spider down the left is one of the border folders that came w/ the one I used on the front
