The Four Seasons Challenge - Autumn Month 2

Hello Friends and Happy October 1st!  It's time for a new challenge month at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog and we're entering the 2nd month of Autumn themes.

It's the month of things that go bump in the night and my project features layered stenciling using the Spooky Icons layering stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

This is a 4 piece stencil set and is actually easy to layer up, plus I adore the fun images!  I chose traditional Halloween colors using Catherine Pooler inks.  Catherine Pooler Inks are my favorite at the moment and I've used vivid colors from the Party Collection line.

My card measures 5.5" square, which is my favorite square size to create as I can use most of a 8.5" x 11" sheet of card.  I've added a black mat, tied some black twine, and added some shine with sequins.  The sentiment is the Happy Halloween Die Sentiment with shadow from Kat Scrappiness, the shadow layer was cut from vellum.

Please visit us at The Four Seasons Challenge this Month.  We are always excited to see your makes and visit your posts.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
