Newton's Nook Designs September Release: Day 3


Welcome back for the third day of reveals for Newton's Nook Designs.  Today we are showing off this cool new Halloween set with lots of cool silhouettes images to make you own cool spooky Halloween scenes called 'Spooky Street':


I was psyched when Jen sent us this set because I don't have a lot of silhouette sets and they are SO much fun to use with brayered backgrounds, so that is the kind of card I made:


I actually got the idea this card from a card I received several years ago from one of my crafting friends, Emily, which used a different set of course, but had this cool brayered background behind solid black Halloween images, a similar layout, and was the impetus behind me searching high and low for that EK Success Boo border punch (LOL, I love it!).  I really like how this card came out, in real life, the center panel looks luminous, like it is glowing, VERY cool!  I used an ultra fine black gel pen to draw a line from the 'A' in 'happy HAUNTS' to the spider so he (she?  it?) looks like it is dangling from the sentiment.
