It’s the September Anything Halloween challenge with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge blog and what an interesting mood board to inspire a card.
All of those skeleton heads caught my eye but really it was the awesome hats helped me decide on the Tim Holtz framelets with stamps and texture fades set.
To begin, I created a woodgrain background on black cardstock using 1/4 inch score lines, then swiped Hero Hues Unicorn White pigment ink over the score lines. After that dried, I spritzed that background a few times with the Halloween color Distress Oxide sprays and then came back in with the spider web stamp from the same set stamping in the Hero Hues unicorn white ink, adding some white embossing powder and heat setting. The spider was die cut from the same set too. I needed to add a flower and found this rosette in my stash and added the orange gem to the top.
I had a lot of fun creating this background and card with the hopes of getting some mojo back.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Happy Labor Day and stay safe.
