Putting On My Hat

Hello everyone! Shanna here today with another Halloween card featuring Hex Yeah!

I have been bitten by the stencil bug recently, and have been playing around with different techniques and stumbled upon a fun one!  I used Distress Oxides on black cardstock for my background with the Puzzle Box stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  The opaque nature of the oxides gives almost a foggy look to the colors when applied on black, and I really like how it blended out!  I used Seedless preserves, Carved Pumpkin, and Mustard Seed oxide inks in random areas over the puzzle box stencil to create my background.  For a bit of glitz, I pulled a spiderweb stencil from my stash and used to Gina K Glitz glitter gel in black for another layer of interest. 

My witch hat was a long forgotten extra I found tucked away in my fall embellishments and I couldn’t resist pairing it with the sassy sentiment from the Hex Yeah stamp set!  I heat embossed the sentiment in gold on the same black cardstock I had used for my base panel.  Last touches were a couple strips of Washi tape from my stash and I was all done.

This card came together fairly easily, and I am in love with the end result.  What is your favorite stenciling technique?  The Rabbit Hole Designs has some pretty neat stencils, if you haven’t seen them yet check them out here.

That wraps up my post for today, I will be back next week for another trip down The Rabbit Hole!  Until then you can find me over on my blog, Caffeinated Craftiness or over on Instagram!
