Halloween Wall Décor

It's Tuesday and time to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. This week my teammates and I are spotlighting stencils. I love and use stencils all the time so this was not a stretch assignment. I created a sign to decorate the house at Halloween time and used stencils, stamps, paints, Copics, and die-cuts. 

Here it is!

  • The Fran-tage Embossing Enamels combine different colors and metallics to create a really cool look.
