MC Sept/13 - eCut - Halloween Boo

I was in a mood to make a Halloween card BIG GRIN and of course use my new electronic cutter...

I side folded my white 110# cardstock. Cut a nice sized circle (Spellbinders) and used it mask my moon. Hit the card front with  Distress "Stormy Sky" then "Chipped Sapphire", then "Dusty Concord". Removed the mask and gently swiped a spong over the white moon for ghostly streaks. Stamped a lot of the Halloween word/sentiments from the "Halloween Wicked" set from Quietfire Design  usingVersfine "Toffee" and embossing with "Amethyst" embossing powder.

I cut the house and made a silhouette image as well which I sponged with Distress "Mustard Seed"

The house was sponged with Pumice Stone, then some Crushed Olive, then I embossed it with
Spellbinders Brick/Wood Grain embossing folder using the brick side (actually the negative of the brick folder... so it looks more like siding than brick). Hit the high points with "Aged Mahogany". Glue them together.

Cut the bare tree and hit it with a Walnut Stain pad. Cut the fence which is a take on the Memory Box haunted fence die. Used the woodgrain embossing folder and sponged various browns. The ironwork was hit with a black pad and embossed with black embossing powder.

I electronically cut the cat (Quietfire Design), hit with black pad and black embossing powder and added an amber rhinestone for the eye.

Stamped the word "Boo" from the same Halloween rubber stamp set, clear embossed, die cut with Spellbinders "Radiant Rectangles" set, sponged some yellow, adhered it to the card, wrapping part of it to the back of the card.

Punched out the bat (Martha Stewart) from black cardstock. Added some white rhinestone stars.

Assembled everything together. I'm content.

And it fits for these challenges:
Pan Pastel UK  #37 make it blue
One Stitch at a Time  #181 Autumn/Fall
