Happy Haunting

CTMH-Spellbound; PTI-2009 Halloween Tags

I know it's been awhile and I won't bore you with the gory details. Suffice it to say I have been "under the weather" and then a new Wegmans opened nearby and of course once I was feeling better, I had to check it out. What an awesome place. I find myself making excuses to go food shopping. Imagine that.

Now on to my card. I really love all the brayered cards I have seen but I have to admit, although I have one, I have no idea how to use it properly. Instead, I took out my blending tool and various Distress Inks to create the background for this card. The graves and the spooky fence you may recognize as Martha punches and the bats are negative scraps from an EK Success border punch. I used a white gel pen to highlight the branches of the tree and a yellow Sakura glaze pen for the eyes, nose and mouth of each pumpkin. It all comes together to create a pretty eerie Halloween scene. And if you have time, please check out my daughter's card in the post below.


  1. Oh Cibele, glad your feeling better and getting out. Love your brayer card so much. I love the shading and blending.Spooktacular!

  2. WOWSERS GF this is stunning!!! Love every little detail you put into it...and that is a lot! You CRACKED ME UP With your comment about my Halloween fun.."apparently too much" I busted UP!
    Quickie you pay to have that Feedblitz subscribe to my blog email thingy??? And how do you get that bookmark and share pop up thingy? Ok that's 2 questions :-)
    I have missed you...Hope you are all better! What is Wegmans? I have a brayer too and it refuses to work for me...leaves lines all I use a sponge...much more betterer :-)
    Ok I am done.

  3. Your card is really spooky. Great job. Love all the details. Am thinking I would like to have one of those fence punches. I will have to see when I get another 50% Michael's coupon.
    Glad you are better.

  4. What an adorably spooky card - TFS!

  5. You make such BEAUTIFUL cards, Cibele! I may just have to "borrow" some of your ideas. Don't worry, I'll give you credit! LOL! Can't wait to get together!


Sharing your thoughts makes my day and I appreciate that you take the time to leave me a comment.
