Waltzingmouse September Release - Halloween Fun!

I hope you are enjoying the sneak peeks of the September Waltzingmouse Release.  Today we have lots of Halloween fun for you!  The design team is previewing three more sets - "Splat That" - a mini set with ink spots and claw marks and paint swooshes, "The Count" another mini set featuring the one and only Count Dracula, and a full size Gothic Halloween set called "All Hallows Eve".

My first project features His Excellency the Count with his very own "calling card"  I had to add some bloody red ink splats to make it more terrifying!! Bwahhhh haaahahhaaa!!
 My second project features some pretty scroll work and a poem to keep you safe when the witches appear this Halloween.
I added all sorts of pretty embellishments to my card including a pretty doily, lace, and inked foliage.  To make the lace accent under the flower I threaded button twine through the holes in a 7" length of lace and tied the ends together to form a circle.   The orange beaded spray came from the "wedding" section of the craft store, and  was originally white.  I colored the pearls with Copic markers to add the brilliant color. 
And for those of you who know I am a gardener - here is a photo of a bloom from my very own St. John's Wort in my yard. The flowers are really quite spectacular!   

I know you have lots more you want to see - here's a list of the other DT members who are sharing previews today.

Love the splatter on the music sheet Jeanne! and the great plaid on your 2nd creation! thanks for showing a real St. John's wort - I was wondering what color they were!

Kara said...

How fun!! Love those blood splatters!!

Cathy Weber said...

Count Dracula is so scary looking...especially with all that "blood" scattered around. I had to look very closely at your second card to catch all the details...that lace? So smart. The inked foliage? Wow. Just too many neat little details...almost forgot, that corner piece in bright orange? Unbelievably creative. You really blew me away today Jeanne. I also love the beautiful St. John's Wort from your garden. I never pictured that plant as being so pretty with such an ugly name!

Beautiful picture of your very own real flower...such detail.

Truly delightful Jeanne! Such creativity, not only with your card designs, but I just love that you created these amazing embellishments. So very clever!

Deborah Frings said...

I really like the Count image - both elegant and quite spooky too! I really like the splash of red - works a treat. I can see the splashes working on grunge cards for my boy too!

And wow! I think your second card is amazing! I love the black doily and orange rose - just so you!
