FM27 Double, Double, Toil and Trouble!

Today's Mashup is a fun one! Halloween - yay!


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a "Halloween themed" Project.
  2. Or Make a Project using the colors: "Black, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade & Concord Crush".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Halloween project using the Colors listed above".
Truth be told, these colors were too bright for the sinister stamp set I was looking to use. With non-traditional color combos, brayering always works! So there I turned.

Now, another confession, I got a little too enthusiastic with the brayering, and the colors muddied a little in the middle. But this is the last card standing between me and vacation, so what'cha gonna do? I may go back to it later to fix it.

Also, notice my little sunset at the bottom. I should have used a slightly lighter sponging hand. All a learning experience.

I also used the Creating Pretty Cards sketch challenge on Craft Project Central.

Stamps: House of Haunts; Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pick Your Poison DSP; Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Concord Crush, Black Stazon; Accessories: Sponge, Brayer, Lucky Limeade ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels, 3/4", 1" , and 1-1/4" Circle punches, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Spider Web embossing folder, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is spectacular! You've done a fabulous job with the brayer. I love the other elements too - the spider web and the little black flowers. Awesome card.

Spooktacular card! Love how you worked the colors into the brayering. I think the "muddied" area adds to the spooky feeling of the card.
