I didn't want to make a Halloween card its not something we send to each other here in the UK although they are fun to make. As soon as I saw the Silhouette Flowers from Paper Smooches I knew I was going to use them. At the time I hadn't worked out how.
In the end I got out the Oxides and used my favourite technique since its easy to do. I stamp a craft Sheet with the inkpad and mist some water and smooch the cardstock in the ink. I made 3 different colourways and then used dies to cut them out. I then blended ink in places where the initial ink smooching missed or to bring out more colour, for example the purple flowers.
I love those dragonflies couldn't believe my luck when I saw them in the die set. I decided to cut out the word Autumn with Paper Smooches Sassy Letters well I thought it was Doodlebug Booville but then I worked it out it wasn't so it could be I Love Family by Echo Park both are out of stock now they weren't when I made the card. To be honest as long as its an Autumn orange or yellow any make would do.
To finish I added Birthday Wishes using Simon Says Stamp Best Hugs.
