Even though it's late for a Halloween card, I just had to show you a card we made at my monthly stamp clubs:
You'll notice that I followed the sketch almost exactly--except where I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits instead of the banner. You might also notice that it's a little bit longer than normal. I just cut it in the middle and extended it beyond the focal image to make it a bit taller. The label framelit covers the edges so no one would ever know that it's cut in half! For the focal image, I heat embossed an image from Toxic Treats and using a 3/4" circle as a mask, sponged More Mustard ink around the circle. Remove the circle and you have a perfect, spooky full moon!
I amped up the spook factor with a single eyeball accent and some champagne shimmer paint brushed over the spider web embossed background. Gives a subtle sparkle to the background.
I used the same full moon masking technique on the inside along with two more of the images from Toxic Treats. Stamping the images in Tangerine Tango and the masked moon in More Mustard.
And just because it goes so well with the colors and the full moon of today's card, I thought I would share a picture from our recent trip to Savannah, Georgia. The historic district is brimming with gorgeousness around every corner and this historic square is no exception. It was a perfect Southern night for strolling and snapping a pic or two!
I hope you'll find this week's challenge a perfect excuse to get busy in your craft room.
