Waltzingmouse September Release Previews ~ Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Preview.  Today, 3 sets will be featured:  Splat That, All Hallows Eve and The Count

I'm only sharing a project with one of the sets today:  All Hallows Eve  And people, this set has such a fun variety of images, it's almost impossible to choose one to work with.  I chose the raven and framed him with Labels 28 and Decorative Labels 28 (Spellbinders).  I inked up the background with Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord and Black Soot Ranger Distress ink, then sprinkled a bit of water over it.  I also added a spider and web punched border (EK Success) along the bottom.

I also made some black roses with ivory cardstock and Bitty Blossoms dies (Spellbinders).  I inked them up with Black Soot (Ranger Distress Ink), Spritzed them with a mister, dried them with a heat tool, rolled them up and added a bit of hot glue to the bottom.  I then added some Frosted Lace Stickles.  They're beautifully creepy in real life.  :)    I had to lighten it up a bit for you to be able to see the detail.

That's it from me today.  Here's a list of the other Design Team members who are sharing some inspiration.
