Definitely not a traditional "wreath" card, and not a traditional Halloween card either, but I really like how it turned out! After partially cutting out the wreath on a piece of Winter Wisteria cardstock, I stamped it with the leaves with Winter Wisteria ink. Next I made a mask of the wreath and covered what I had stamped, and then used the Winter Wisteria ink and a Memory Box stencil (Texture Distressed Web)...love how that came out! Here's a closer up view:
I added another wreath cut from some newsprint DSP, and then added a few more die cuts. The bat wings are from the "Bitty Halloween Treats & Sweets" Die Collection, and then I added a die cut circle (from the "Rattled" die set I still had on my desk!) for the bats body. I added some hemp cord beneath the bat, and that helped to make him "pop" a little more from the card. The sentiment is a die cut from the "Tricky Trio" Die Collection. The DSP I used for the inside of the card is from a Recollections pad called "Haunted Manor" (Michael's). I added a couple google eyes and a few sequins to finish off the card.
I feel really good about this card mostly because I used the die for something I normally never would have thought of...so thanks again Nancy Penir for inspiring me to think outside the box!! :0)
There's still time to play along with this challenge, so make sure you check out Danielle's video and card (that I'm still drooling over!!) over on Nichole Heady's site right here .
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!! :0)
