Meet Wicked and Trouble :)

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today over at Cardz 4 Galz and the theme is What's New? So we would like to see your newest technique or recent purchase.

I have two Halloween cards to share with you today... they feature my new Tim Holtz Silly Monsters and Halloween Word dies and on my first card I finally gave the 'Distress Resist Spray & Stencil' technique a try. I used TH Lattice Work stencil, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Distress inks and followed this tutorial... she gives great step-by-step instructions on all of her beautiful cards and backgrounds! 
 On my second card I used TH Distress Collage medium- Crazing for the first time and Kaisercraft Bubbly stencil, along with the same distress ink colors as above.   
The monsters were created using a watercolor smooshing technique with a piece of mixed media paper and Spiced Marmalade ink. Once dry- I cut the monsters out and then stamped them randomly with the Water Droplet background stamp from Deep Red Stamps.
And there you have it- a couple of fun Halloween cards using a new technique and lots of new crafty supplies!

Now head on over to the main challenge blog and check out the beautiful cards by the other team members!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of the comments you leave!
