My most anticipated monthly challenge is live! It’s May Anything Halloween with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge blog. This month’s inspiration mood board seemed to focus on black and gold with a hint of orange. I was drawn to the dinner table place settings and decided that no respectable Halloween party can take place without a spooky chandelier!!
My card used a gold heat embossed chandelier from maybe Outlines/Hampton Arts. I did not have the original packaging any more on this older red rubber stamp. I stamped the image in verafine black onyx ink and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. To me, I get a much better and less splotchy emboss than using veramark. And it was interesting that the black ink worked well with colored embossing powder. I popped up my panel with some fun foam and then decided to frame it with Hero Arts Wood Frame Infinity dies cut from black and gold patterened paper from my stash. The side of the frame cuts out slightly so I mounted it on an orange card base so a little orange peeks through the frame. And since crows were invited to the dinner party on the mood board I found Mr. Crow from a Recollections stamp set, gold heat emboss the guest of honor and fussy cut him out to oversee the activities.
Another fun challenge and inspiration mood board from the Two Old Bats.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.
