When I fist saw this background paper, I knew this had to be used for a halloween project! As I usually love to do more than one ATC at a time, I made a threesome.
I cut out the ATCs and distressed the edges, which I afterwards blended with "black soot" Distress ink and a rough kitchen sponge cube. I tore strips from a page of an old book and gave them the same treatment.
Then I stamped the images of the skeletton, the crow and the Snake Oil label on them and set them aside to dry.
In the meantime I stamped the quotes (from My Mind's Eye and Martha Stewart) onto lilac cardstock with embossing ink, covered them with black "Sternenstaub" embossing powder and heated them. The finished quotes were cut out, the edges distressed and again treated with "black soot".
To add some depth, I stamped images of a pumpkin (My Mind's Eye), a skull ((My Mind's Eye) and a raven (Tim Holtz) onto the background as well as a text-border from the Martha Stewart Halloween stamp set.
I covered small brads with lilac nail polish and added some orange glitter flakes as embellishments with a "bling". Book page strips and quotes were glued onto the background, brads fixed. Done!
Hope, you like them! (Maybe you wanna trade? ;)
