Inchie – tastic Halloween

190.1 halloween card, niki meiners, nikimeinersI am sure I have posted before that I love INCHIES.  I made this card last year and I liked it so much that I made several versions of it.  Sometimes the simplest designs are my favorite.  My grandmother always told me less is more.  Thinking back on my favorite designs she is absolutely correct.  My scoring board has become one of my favorite tools.  The simple lines used to highlight the set of images is so subtle yet it adds the most impact.  It is a silent accent that speaks volumes.  What are you favorite tools?

I used Clearsnap Ink, Prism Cardstock, Dove Blender pen, Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue and Aleene’s Paper Glaze.
