Directions:

  1. [Halloween1]   Halloween cards aren’t something I usually do, but I wanted to share my idea of a brick wall using a white dabber.  This technique could also be used for a snow wall and so many other things.  Love to see how you’d use it.
  2. Cut a black piece of cardstock 3.75” x 5” and run through the Cuttlebug.  Taking the white paint dabber, pounce and spread across the black paper until you get the desired look.  Stamp light post, window and corner ghost with black ink and cut out.  Color window items with   colored pens, when dry, color background with light grey pen.  After cutting out the street lamp, put grey around the base and two shades of yellow where the bulb would be.  Also color over the corner design with the grey pen. 
  3. Glue orange paper to cardstock.  Attach corner, light post, window and bat with pop dots.  Put cat sticker in lower left hand corner of  wall.
