Hocus Pocus

I know we are only at the beginning of September but I wanted to try out the new Hocus Pocus die.  This is a Bigz die so that means you can cut thick material which is perfect for this project.  
The idea-ology Regions Beyond paper was adhered to a piece of chipboard for the background. I also painted the Clipboard Clip with Black Soot Distress Paint before adding it to the panel with wire. 
 I adhered Black Kraft-Core and Regions Beyond paper to chipboard before running the die through the Vagabond. 
I used the Halloween Words Thinlit die to cut a piece of manila cardstock.  Then layered it with a gold Deco Sheet to make the letters pop.  A couple Mini Fasteners hold the flag in place.
Ephemera pieces make an appearance in the Cabinet card background. 
I used the Remnant Rubs on the side of the Cabinet Card by laying it down and randomly rubbing over the pattern.

I hope this little project gets some Halloween ideas flowing! 
now carry on,
