Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year, and I was inspired to make this little decoration using some of the new Alterations dies combined with a few older dies. You will find a plethora of ideas for altering your die cuts in this project. Let's get started!
die cutting, emboss the roof portion of one of the houses with the Stripes Texture Fade. Emboss the lower part of the other house with the Bricked Texture Fade.
die cutting the the fence, paint the fence pieces with Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint. When dry, cover with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain (not shown). Let dry and then cover with Black Soot Distress Stain to highlight the cracks. Wipe away excess and set aside to dry. You can also use your heat gun to speed up the process.
