Glitter Witches

Hello Friends!

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 :)
