 I had another play with the new halloween stamps from Chocolate Baroque and a pile of distress inkpads, and these are the results.
All the images were stamped with black versafine ink, and the distress inks used were rusty hinge, aged mahogany, spiced marmalade, dusty concord, chipped sapphire and black soot.
Square card is 6x6, with matting layers of black and dull gold, and the spooky drawn in sakura sparkle pen   using the negative from a sizzix die as a pattern. The next  one is A6,mounted onto dull black distressed round the edges and then onto a kraft base card.
 The mini ones are 4x4, stamped  and inked directly onto the white base card.
 I did add a bit of colour to the gravestones with promarkers

am linking these to the Make my Monday challenge, which is halloween this week (obviously)


  1. These are great! I love the sky in the small ones, very eerie.

  2. I have to agree with Rocky above - the skies in the small ones are so atmospheric especially the top one of the two. Looks like you've had great fun.

  7. These are brilliant Veronica! I love your atmospheric skies especially the first of the 4x4 cards ..... super colours. I didn't get round to making any Halloween cards this year which is a shame because I think they are so much fun. If I don't get a wiggle on I won't be making any Christmas cards either. I need a kick up the whatsit to get me going at the moment!
