Halloween Haunted House
I decided to take a break from the madness of home repairs and play with my new embossing powders and book board cut outs from Globecraft Piccolo. I love their embossing powders, they are such a wonderful mix of blended colors. I started with this adorable House Haunting Ornament. I trimmed off the hanger on the top to just make it a frame. I embossed the base with Vintage Black embossing powder. I added a bit of Turquoise Lagoon embossing powder to the moon in the sky and to the base of the house. Next I glued the plastic dome down on the frame. Using Starry Sky embossing powder, I covered the second frame which I then glued over the edge of the dome. It is really hard to get a good pic of the beauty of the embossing powders and the frame. I added a couple of Happy Pumpkin Accents, which I covered with Orange 3D Enamel Gel for a lovely shiny effect. I did the same thing with the bats from the Halloween House Haunting Accents by adding Mars Black 3D Enamel Gel.
Now for my card construction, I started with a 5.75 inch square purple base. I added a piece of patterned paper from the WeRMemory Keepers Spookville 6x6 paper pad. Next I added a Cheery Lynn Designs Spider Web Mesh border and Ornamental Gate. And that was about it! Thanks for stopping by. Now back to my repairs!
