Spooky Ms. Skull

 Today I'm sharing a Halloween card I made using stencils and a die cut.

The stencils are all from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Halloween, Harlequin and Bat Ground.   I used blender brushes to apply the Distress Inks through the stencils onto a white card panel - Carved Pumpkin through the Harlequin background and Black Soot through the Bat Ground and the sentiment.  

I held the bat stencil at an angle so they look like they are flying up from left to right and I only inked through part of it as I didn't want it to fill the panel.

I die cut the woman skull from black card and layered her over the panel with foam dots.  I layered the inked panel over a larger black panel.

I'm linking my card to the following:

Paper:  White, True Black - Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Ranger Distress Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot.
Accessories:  Halloween, Harlequin and Bat Ground Stencils - Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous, blender brushes foam dots, skull die - no brand.

Fab Halloween card, Julia! At first glance you see the fine lady silhouette, then you notice it's a skull - wow! Love the stenciled background too!
