Happy national color day and almost happy Halloween ! I decided to combine the two holidays since they are only a week apart. When you are creating Halloween projects remember to make it fun- add more color. Try a new color combo. Halloween doesn’t have to use traditional colors like orange and black all the time. Today, i am sharing with you a fun stencil that i used from the simple stories say cheese Halloween collection. I used this stencil to make a 4x6 card and a 8x8 scrapbook page.

First, grab a bright piece of cardstock( here i used the green from the dcwv party cardstock pack) and a texture paste from my stash ( here is a link to a great texture past at the fotobella.com shop- https://www.fotobella.com/Stamperia-Gesso-Paste) then you need a. Spatula of some sort to spread the paste

Place your stencil down on the paper and with your spatula smear the texture paste into and across the stencil so that the paste gets in all the groves. Then carefully lift up stencil to reveal design and set aside to dry.

After the paste on your design is dry , fussy cut it out.

Then on my prepared cardbase of orange cardstock i glue down it down on top.

I then distress the edges with my scissors and add pen detail around it to make it pop

lastly with a boy diecut and stickers from the collect i finish off the details of the card.

For the 8 x8 scrapbook page i do the same techniques Except on the scrapbook page i add more matting around the photo and accent with the stickers . I even customized the diecut of the girl by giving her a horn and black nose to mimick my daughters costume:)
