Will “pink” replace orange and black as the new Halloween colors? Probably not but at least for the February Anything Challenge mood board, it sure seemed that would happen. This was a fun option for Halloween. My card for this challenge uses Gina K Designs Haunted Harvest stamp set and Tim Holtz Sizzix Garden Greens. Lots of pink in various shades but it looks cute to my eyes.
My first attempt was way more detailed (next card). The frame border is Hero Arts Leaves & Vines die, Stamps from Inkadinkadoo Cats & Bats, SimonSaysStamp Happy Haunting, Spook up Some Fun, Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle and Ink Antics Cloud stencil. My first thought was I wanted to try Buddy Bonnie’s cloisonne technique. I pulled out a Halloween Haven catalog that Bonnie had sent to me and stamped my pumpkin in versamark over a pinkish page of the catalog, heat embossed in bronze embossing powder and fussy cut it. Stamped the image again and heat embossed in bronze, then stenciled pink clouds. At this point I wasn’t sure which direction to go and decided to cut down the image and surround it with the leaf frame. Stamped a few bats and added the sentiment. It’s ok! LOL….Better than horrible.
Love to play Halloween year round with the Two Old Bats and their fun mood boards.
Thanks for stopping in today. It was a beautiful day in Pennsylvania. A taste of spring…take that Punxsutawney Phil! LOL!! Take care and be safe.
