Hello! I feel like I inadvertently came up with theme for my Halloween cards this year. So many of them have Halloween elements but can, for folks like me, work for the entire year. Today’s card is another example of the “Kinda Halloween, Kinda Not” theme I came up with. This card uses 2 stencils from A Colorful Life Designs, and the work so well together.

I had made a few monoprints on my 6×6 Gel Press Plate using a couple of Fluid Acrylics from Golden. I used Dioxazine Purple and Prussian Blue, with a touch of Iridescent Silver. After it dried, I used the Moon & Stars stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and some silver embossing paste to create my background. The moons and stars shine, and you can see hints of the silver in sky too. It’s even prettier in person.
I wanted to use the Witch stencil with this background, and since she’s so big, I made a bigger card. It’s a 5×7, and you can see that she fills the space nicely. It allowed me to use more of my sky too. To ink her up, I used Villainous Potion and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. I cut her out and decided to use a gray card base. I inked the edges with VersaMark Ink, and then heat embossed all four sides with Shimmering Night Sky Mboss from Imagine. I tore the bottom of my sky and heat embossed that with Silver. I had plenty of room on the bottom of the card for my sentiment, and since I wasn’t really going for a “true” Halloween card, I went with one from Tim Holtz/Stamper’s Anonymous’ Noteworthy set, stamped with Twilight VersaFine Clair ink.
I love how this turned out. Any many of my witchy friends will totally get where I was going with this card. So can it be used for Halloween? Sure. But I will definitely be using it at another time of year. I hope you’ll check out all of the amazing stencils from A Colorful Life Designs.
