Artisan Award Winners Blog Hop #4

My favorite of all my card entries! I just can't seem to get enough Halloween stuff. I love it all, well maybe not all. I am not into the cute Halloween stuff. I am definitely more the scary type or stuff with a vintage flair.

Things to point out on this card. First, it took forever. Second the panel of dsp on the bottom half of the card was texturized to look like a wains coat of wall paper and in my mind I saw the ribbon as a chair rail. These elements help to create the idea of looking out the window from inside an old and dark spooky house.

Here is the recipe for this card:
Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry,
& Elegant Eggplant Cardstock
Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Spooky Treats Rub Ons
Scary Skeleton & Bird On A Branch Stamp Sets
Elegant Eggplant Craft Ink
Orchard Ribbon Originals & 5/8” Black Grosgrain
Rhinestone Brads, Circle Ice
Brads, Earth Elements
Window Sheets, Thick
¾” Circle & Modern Label Punches
1 ¼” & 1 3/8” Square Punches
SU! Backgrounds 1 Texture Plates
Clear Embossing Powder
Hot Glue (webs)
