Well, … I think I have it …for the last few days I've been working on this idea of a card that is a little different … I guess I would call it Hauntingly Elegant …..
Doesn't it look like an old invitation to a Masquerade Ball that you found in a trunk in Grandma's Attic? i love how the flower really looks dried out and fragile…..maybe a speck of mold since it was locked away in a trunk…..
I embossed the back ground image with the new Pewter embossing powder in the Holiday Mini catty…and the image is from Creative Elements Stamp Set…and of course I had to Vanilla Smooch Spritz the entire card…I really love that when you go a little heavy on it …. your inks will bleed every so slightly …..The Candelabra image is from Wicked Cool stamp set …..
Even with out the Candelabra image…You would still know that this was a Halloween Event …a grown up type event with no pumpkins, ghouls or anything else on the front…I love how just with the color choice you can create a specific theme without the traditional images…..
I used calypso coral and rich razzleberry with our distressing kit to make the flower look ….well … dead and dried out …..and the Your invited image was from Sincere Salutations and it was embossed in the new Pewter embossing powder …..
I would love to show you and your friends how to make elegant Halloween themed projects for your grown up Masquerade Ball ….from party favors to decorations …..
