Funkie Junkie Focus – "How Scary Is That?" Halloween Panel

Hello Funkie Junkie fans! We're getting into the spooky season and the current theme of "How Scary Is That?"reflects it. I like to create fun whimsical Halloween makes so I got to work using one of the new Square Etcetera Panels as the base.

Mr. Bones is awesome.

Here are some step photos of how this all came together:

Step 1 – I started with the 8.5" x 8.5" Etcetera panel and covered the front with an inky Distress background on the top and a painty Distress background on the bottom. The bottom section I also stamped with a spiderweb stamp and embossed with black embossing powder. The Glow Grit Paste is super cool and I applied it using the Peek a boo stencil and the smaller version from the Minis Set 56.

Step 2 – I used the Spellbound stencil to add some stars to the sky. Clear embossing ink (Distress Embossing Dabber) embossed with Lost Shadow Distress Glaze added a subtle touch.

Step 3 – The ledge I made from a strip of foam core board bolstered by a set of Bracket Etcetera Trims. The 
Decorative Trims Die Set makes it really easy to cover all the Etcetera Trim parts with paper. Cut and glue, easy peasy.

Step 4 – The fun part was making all the elements to build on the background. Various Sizzix die sets, new and old, came into play. I also included some of the new Idea-ology headstones from this year's Graveyard set. I added diecut paper elements to them to help them blend into the scene.
