Halloween Card (I Love Math Challenge #7 mid-inspiration)

Hello everyone!

There are seventeen more days to join the seventh I Love Math Challenge. :o) If you're new to my blog, you can find more about the challenge and previous challenges here.

The theme for this challenge is SEVEN: use number 7 or seven something on your project.

Seven is an odd number and fourth prime number
An odd number is a number that cannot be divided evenly with 2. 
prime number can be divided, without a remainder, only by itself and by 1.

Today I'm sharing my inspiration card for the challenge. I made this one layer, Halloween Card.

I stamped 7 bats and a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set directly on a front panel of a white top folded card base. I cut a circle from a cardstock paper scrap and masked the part where I wanted the Moon to be. I blended Distress Inks Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord on the panel and blended edges with Distress Ink Black Soot. When I was satisfied with my Halloween sky, I removed mask and left card to dry a bit on air. As a finishing touch, I coated bats with clear Wink of Stella.

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm  (3 3/4" x 5")

  • Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set
