Halloween ATC's

Hello blog friends! 
I've been so inspired by all the new Tim Holtz Halloween release I just had to make some more projects!

This ATC was made with grunge board die cuts using dies from the Alterations line (Mini Cat On the Fence). I started with a natural canvas ATC from Ranger's Inkssentials surfaces line, colored with Distress Stain then glued all the elements down. The fence was colored with Picket Fence Distress Stain and Distressed with an ink blending tool and Vintage Photo Ink.
 The cat has been flocked to make it look like fur. 
Aren't these little pods perfect for pumpkins in front of the fence. 
This spooky ATC starts with a black ATC and then stamped using Perfect Medium and powdered with Pewter Perfect Pearls. Happy Halloween, Calendar and Poison label are all stamped with pitch black Archival ink and then Distressed with Ink on your Ink Blending Tool. 
The mini skull die cut is a perfect size for cards, ATC, and the Configuration boxes. 
The Spider is from the Halloween Adornment set. 
 Stamp the Halloween background image using various colors of Distress Stain. I spritz the image with a little water before stamping it onto a Kraft ATC. Now stamp the spider and bats with Archival Ink. Emboss the stamped image with the matching embossing folder.
It's so amazing how it just lines right up. Ingenious! 
Pumpkin die cut has been painted with Rock Candy crackle and after it's dry color pumpkin with Rusty Hinge Distress Stain. The eye, nose and mouth where done the same way using Black Soot Stain. The BOO is a Salvage sticker from the Seasonal pack. Use a Charm Clip to attach this Muse Token.  

Happy Creating!
