How have you been? It seems like way to much time in between my posts! But Halloween is coming and so is Christmas so I am hoping to make more projects to share. :)
This past Saturday I got the treat of going to Michaels. "Don't go crazy" my sweet husband always says...but it's almost Halloween! ;) LOL So I am looking for some Halloween card making paper and all they have are 12X12 stacks (minus the last 8x8 Tim Holtz Halloween that I snatched up). One of the stacks is like black and gold Halloween-like fancy Halloween.
Unfortunately, I'm not a fancy Halloween person. I must have orange and black and pumpkins and witches. I didn't get any paper (also I found a new stack of Halloween paper in a Christmas order I had placed and gotten. So glad I didn't buy any paper!) But this thought of fancy Halloween haunted me. Why can't I do a fancy Halloween card? What constitutes fancy?
So I used Rangers Sticky Embossing Powder with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Golden Silver glitter and created this:
It's a fancy meets grunge--LOL. I love the brightness of this glitter-all of my other glitter and embossing powder is dark gold. It seems like bright happy gold is everywhere. For the background I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Viva Inka Gold (which looks better on black than I would have ever imagined.) The witches and sentiment are both from Great Impressions stamps.
For the lace I used antique linen and tarnished brass distress stains and some black distress ink.
I am entering this Fancy grunge card into the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...stay shiny :)
