Halloween Sign using Silhouette Cameo

I'm having some fun with vinyl!  I've just gotten some vinyl for cutting with my Silhouette Cameo and I've found a new crafty must have!! Let me take you through the making of this sign.

I painted the wood, orange on the surface and black on the edges.

I designed the sign layout in the Silhouette Software.  I then cut it out of vinyl. I weeded the pieces of vinyl where I wanted to paint the sign.

I laid the vinyl carefully on the painted sign being certain to have all edges firmly tacked down.

Using a sponge brush, I applied the black paint. After it dried, I applied Top Emboss to the word "bewitchy" and sprinkled it with some WOW black glitter embossing powder, which I heat embossed.

I used WOW silver glitter embossing powder on the cauldron accent and to create the steam.  I also applied some black glitter to the edges of the sign. I lightly sanded the edges and some of the surface of the sign for a slight distressed look.

Here are some additional views

Now I can't wait to break out the vinyl and do some more designing!!
