Happy Halloween! Something Wicked this way comes!

Happy Halloween!  

Suzanne asked if I wanted to do the Halloween post and I jumped at the idea...I love creating Halloween projects!  I pulled out the wickedly awesome stamp set, Something Wicked, and started playing.

Something Wicked 2018, Set of 6 Stamps - Mounted

The card is a fancy fold layout with spellbinding textures and details.

The quote was stamped and heat embossed using the new Modern Gilding Powder in Gothic Black.  After die cutting the mat (below the quote), I heat embossed it using Kells Gold.  What a monstrously cool gold mat!  Next I created an orange wrinkly bow and adhered it to the card front.  The flower is also embossed using Acanthus Teal Modern Gilding Powder.  It matches the papers perfectly and gives a boo-tiful detail to the flower.

More embossing for the inside of the card and- wow- it is quite the spook-tastic contrast to the aged, distressed Halloween papers.  In the bottom right corner I lightly tapped Versamark on the paper and added Kells Gold embossing.  Sometimes the smallest details can make ghoulishly delightful areas of interest.

Very happy with how the card turned out!  It captures the frightful fun of Halloween and the fangtastic fun of crafting!  Win-win.  :)

Have you tried the Modern Gilding Powders?  They are so versatile and help to create the smoothest embossing details on your projects.  (They will look great on your upcoming holiday projects!)

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a Happy Halloween!
