Harvest Moon Mini Card for Simon Says Stamp

Hi everyone...I'm back with another {guest designer} project for Simon Says Stamp.

The theme this week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is halloween or goth. I don't normally do halloween or goth so I found a compromise using the new Lawn Fawn set Happy Haunting and a bright color palette.

This is a 4x4 mini card featuring the spooky house and bats from Happy Haunting.

The house was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Tiara White cardstock. I colored it using various colors of Copic markers. I cut it out and spritzed it with a mixture of Perfect Pearls powder and water in a mini mister. Then I set it aside to dry.

For the background I trimmed white cs to 3.75 square. I covered the whole piece with Jenni Bowlin Lavender Sachet ink. Then I spritzed the Hero Arts Friend Definition cling stamp with the Perfect Pearls water and stamped onto the inked background. This gives a fun blurred image.

Next I punched a 2.25 inch circle from the calendar paper in the Crate Paper Portrait 6x6. I inked it with Wild Honey Distress ink. Then I stamped the pair of bats with Tuxedo Black ink. Then I spritzed this piece with Perfect Pearls too.

To assemble the card I started by adhering a 4x4 black cs panel to the card base. Then I added the "moon" to the background and adhered it to the card. The house was added with dimensional foam adhesive.

To finish I added the sentiment with Tiny Type stickers and then I added some Glossy Accents to the windows and the bats.

So now, make sure you join in on the challenge because Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

I wait quietly before God,
for my victory comes from Him.
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in Him.
