A few more Halloween projects

Here is a couple projects we did at this months Hostess Club meeting. The first project is a spinner card...sorry about the blurry photo. Batty for you is the perfect set to make a spinner card I think! I found great instructions on how to make a spinner card on my favorite stamping website.

Stamps: Batty for You, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Canvas background, Spooky Skyline & Speckled jumbo wheels
Ink: Lovely Lilac, Gable Green, Black Stazon & Basic black ink cartridge
Card stock: Lovely Lilac, Gable Green, Only Orange & Basic Black
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Stampin' dimensionals, Crop-A-Dile, 1-3/8", 1-1/4" & 1" cirlce punches, Photo Corner & Word Window punches

The next project we did was this cute little Halloween decoration that can be hung from a door knob, peg or any where else you can think of. This is made from 4" coasters.

The stars and fog coming from cauldron were stamped on the Perfect Plum card stock with Black Stazon ink and then painting them with the Aqua Painter filled with bleach. This fun technique turns dark card stock very light and allows you to then add color with pencils or markers. In this case water color pencils and a bit of reinker were used to color in all the stars and the fog. To highlight the fog even more, add some highlights using a white gel pen.

Stamps: Haunting Halloween
Card stock: Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie & Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, various to watercolor
Accessories: Orange grosgrain & Black Gingham ribbon, 1/2" circle punch, Crop-A-Dile, Vintage brads, Large Oval punch
