Great Impressions DT - Ghoulish Boo!

Can you feel it?
A little coolness to the air, a tinge of yellow in the trees...Fall is just around the corner!
My most favorite season is coming and with it the holidays!

Halloween is one of those holidays that crafters seem to love or not...with very little in-between. I'm one of those that loves Halloween. It's a holiday full of color, glitter and fun! I mean, c' get to dress up and eat chocolate...caramel apples, cider, pumpkin donuts...have I mentioned I'm a bit of a foodie? *grin* If you've got a favorite Fall recipe, I'd love to hear about it!

Speaking of recipes, I have one for you featuring Great Impressions Stamps'

A few layers, scraps of patterned papers and fiber, an embossing folder, Distress Inks...

and Stains and Stickles...

and a Tim Holtz Sizzix oldie, but goodie!

Okay, here we go...stamp Ghoulish with Staz-On on the front of the vellum. Use Distress Stain in Picket Fence on the back...don't worry about staying in the lines. It's okay to get messy! Once dry, use Spica pens to add a little color and glitter to the ghosts eyes on the front side. Carefully tear along the edges of the vellum

I embossed the orange panel with an embossing folder, but if I had Spider Web (G379), I would have heat embossed it to make the background instead! Use Distressed Background to give the background more character.

The rosette was made using scrap paper and the Tim Holtz Mini Rosettes die. Now you can get out those Distress Inks and go to town making each layer look a little more vintage and add Stickles where ever you need some sparkle!

Inky hugs,
