Halloween Postcard

Good morning all and a big welcome to my new follower Carol, it's lovely to have you with me.

Halloween is the latest challenge at the Speed Craft Challenge, they have changed one of their rules, you now have 15 minutes to make your project instead of 10 minutes. It's nice to have a bit longer but I still didn't finish in the time.

Here is a photo of the items I used.

This is as far as I got in the 15 minutes - I used the stop watch on my phone.

I sponged distress ink on to the card and splattered with water, after drying it I stamped and embossed the skull and sentiment. I made a mask to cover the skull and stamped some crackle then I took some colour of the skull with a water brush, then I edged the card with distress ink.

After the 15 minutes was up I stamped some bats and cats.

Stamps used.
Stampers Anonymous - skull and sentiment.
Kaisercraft - crackle.
Cherry Pie Art Stamps - cats and bats.
