Happy Spooky Halloween!

Spooky Halloween-001

Happy Halloween to you! Don’t let the goblins get you today! The day I created this digital Halloween card, it was really foggy and I thought of how spooky an old deserted house would look on a foggy night.

So how did I get the foggy look? First I added the house from Spooky Bingo Bits to a Smoky Slate background and enlarged it some. Then I added a circle punch and filled it with More Mustard. I added a drop shadow of Crushed Curry with 100% opacity and full blur and off set it quite a bit. I added the Spooky Bats which are in the Wicked Fun Kit and the greeting stamps.

To get the foggy look, I added a square punch enlarged to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and aligned it over the card. I filled it with Smoky Slate color and decreased the opacity to about 75%. I used the layers tool to move this layer back behind the greeting and the foremost bat. I love that layer tool!

So what do you think? Did I achieve the foggy look? Let me know in a comment below. If you want to create this card for yourself and need some of the supplies, click on the links below or visit my online store.

    It’s a great Halloween card, but I don’t really care for Halloween. I’m ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
    Happy Spook Night to you.
