Simon Says… Gothic or Halloween-themed!

Hello and I hope you’re ready for a new Simon Says Stamp Challenge! This week is all about creating something halloween or gothic-themed, and I’ve pulled out my favorite Halloween-themed stamp set Happy Hauntings from Lawn Fawn.

I did the background by stamping the Grid Pattern background from Studio Calico + Hero Arts in Versamark and then embossed it with Zing! white embossing powder. Then I added three colors of distress stains liberally all over the background and sprayed it thoroughly with a water and perfect pearl mist. I blended it a little with my fingers and let it dry, and this is how it turned out. :)

Also, the house is done with distress stains. I just dabbed them on my craft sheet and then painted them on with a paint brush. Bam! Instant water colors with no water necessary. :)























I hope you’ve enjoyed my card for this week’s challenge. I really enjoyed making this one and am learning more and more about distress stains each time I use them. :) Now make sure to head over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to view the rest of the design teams’ creations and join in the challenge yourself. Just by entering, you’ll have a chance to win this fabulous prize provided to us by the lovely Heidi:
