You’re Not Alone.. on Halloween

Good Evening! We have more Halloween inspiration for you tonight. Pauline Butcher is here with her latest card featuring our Skull Shadow and Dark Hearts stencils…

Hello my friends,
This week there has been spooky goings on in my craft room. As Halloween is here, I’ve made a scary card using a couple of the awesome Visible Image Stencils, just to show that you can use a stencil for a foreground image.

The stencils I have used for this card are:


Skull Shadow stencil

Dark Hearts

and I used some of the words from You Are Not Alone stamp set

hand stamps  - you are not alone

I placed the Dark Hearts stencil, onto a piece of white card, and went through it with some black embossing paste using a palette knife, I removed the stencil, then added some sparkly black embossing powder to the wet paste, and heated it up using a heat tool, I added some colour to this, using a brush, and some Decoart liquid acrylics, making a watery wash, over the embossing. I then made drips of thick red paint, to look like blood, ohhhhh how gory !!!!

Taking the Skull Shadow stencil, and a piece of white card, I traced the main image, and fussy cut it. Using the Pentart Crackle, which is a two part crackle, I coated the skull with a thin layer of the primer, and dried with my heat tool, I then added a thick layer of the Crackle paste, and again dried it with my heat tool, the crackles are amazing!

I used more Decoart liquid acrylic paints, adding water for a light wash, and coloured thee skull, using red around the teeth. When it was dry, I shaped it, and added it to some black card with 3D glue Gel, then cut around the card, leaving a small border.

I heat embossed the sentiment onto black card, with red powder, but it didn’t show up, dohhhhh, so I drew around the letters with a white pen (I don’t like to waste anything, lol )



This last photo shows all the dimension, ohhhh and I found an eerie eye in my stash, and added it for a bit of drama!!!!!

Thanks for visiting today.
