Happy Halloween by Jen Shults

For my card I pulled out Totally Tags Halloween and got to work. I stamped the scalloped Trick or Treat tag on Sugar Cube cardstock and then sponged the center with Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. I then embossed the center with clear embossing powder. The heat from the embossing seemed to fade the surrounding black ink but I ended up liking the look so I left it alone. Next I die cut the spider web from the Spiders and Spider Web dies out of vellum and attached it to the back of the scalloped tag. I then made the background by sponging Sugar Cube cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. I then flicked a little water on it to create the water spots and then I embossed it with the Harlequin Embossing Folder from TE. The pumpkin and black cat are die cut using Gothic Window Accessories.  The sentiment is from Bushel and a Peck.
