Morning everyone, I hope that the forecast storm isn't effecting you all too bad.
So its a new challenge over at Make My Monday the theme this fortnight is
I Put a Spell on You (HALLOWEEN)
A Thank You Card
I had great fun making my first real Halloween card. I dug out the chocolate Baroque moon howling stamp set ive also had for years, my wink of stellas and had fun.
First i cut a black card blank using the largest Spellbinders grand labels 1. I used the dies again to cut a black frame that i used silver gilding wax on it to give a distressed moonlit look. On white card i stamped my little scene using various stamps from the set and extending the path with a black fine liner. I then added pebeo drawing gum to mask them.
Using Wink of Stella pens in blue, purple, black, yellow & Orange i made a background using the wet into wet technique. Once completely dry, carefully remove the drawing gum mask.
I glued the spiders web to the back of the frame so that it is hanging over the front. I also added silver gilding to the web and spiders and crackle accents to finish on the spiders.
I added a few highlights with a white gel pen.
The photos don't sadly pick up the amazing sparkle of the wink of stella pens.

Im often asked which card i use for my brusho backgrounds and I now use Craft UK white card for everything, they do smooth, linen and hammered, it die cuts, stamps, and takes all wet techniques perfectly and being 300gsm its perfectly for card bases.
Sorry if i missed you last week, been out with a chest infection, after coming back from france with a cold. So i will catch up with you all soon. I hope you all have a good week. Emma
