By Moonlight

Hello! I wanted to make a simple, lighthearted Halloween card for my Mom, and was happy to see the Tangled Twigs die cut give just the right amount of spookiness to the Tim Holtz' fun Halloween ephemera pieces.

I haven't gotten Tim's newest Halloween ephemera pack yet, but I've still got plenty of great images left from last year's pack. My Mom loves owls so I chose one of the many in the pack, along with the Spooky flash card from the set and paired them with Halloween  Kraft Stock. All I did was blend the flash card and owl with Frayed Burlap Distress ink and splatter with watery Black Soot ink using Tim's splatter brush.

I cut Tangled Twigs from black card and a 'moon' from the kraft stock and layered them over another of the kraft stock patterns. I sanded the background layer and blended the edges with Black Soot ink.

The leaves tucked under the owl are one of Tim's Nature's Wonders stamps, inked with Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Frayed Burlap, and Carved Pumpkin Distress inks. I chose a Halloween Clippings Sticker, and inked it with Frayed Burlap.

The seam binding ribbon was colored with Black Soot, Carved Pumpkin and Mowed Lawn, stapled  with my Tiny Attacher, and tied off with black thread.

This card was so quick and easy to make and just plain fun, and not many supplies were needed. I hope you're inspired to create a fun little Halloween card for someone special, too!

Hugs and Blessings!
