Viva L:as Vegastamps! Halloween Blog Hop day 6

Happy Friday and Welcome to Day 6 of the Halloween blog hop.Now if you remember from the VLVS! blog you know you should be on the hunt on the secret letters throughout the Design teams blogs. hope you been finding them and writing them down. wonder where you will find mine? :P

Today is another card. I'm doing another fun technique, the clear embossing powder resist technique. Now if you remember this is what I was trying to do back in June in the Mary Vogel Lozinak blog hop when I was using the photo paper and came across my happy accident.

I took a piece of Kromecote and stamped the tree background with clear embossing pad and embossed with the ultra high gloss embossing powder. I then took Hottie Pottie Hot pink and Screamin' Banchee Black Starburst Sprays by Lindy's stamp gang. I know these are not traditional Halloween colors, but sometimes you don't have to be traditional. I spayed them on the Kromeote and then wiping what got onto the emboss image. Yes some got of the spray did stay on some parts of the embossing. but that is okay.

On a piece of white cardstock I stamped the Witch CostumeCemetery, and The witching hour stamps with Black Memento ink pad. The Witch I colored with the Picked raspberries and Crushed Olive distress ink pads. I then fussy cut the cemetery and the witch costume. attached the the sentiment and the witch costume and one of the cemetery i stamped with Miracle tape. The other I put foam tape on it and put it on the kromecote piece.

To put the card together. The base is black Recollections card. the pattern paper is a Halloween paper by GCD Studios. Mounted the Kromecote to the pattern paper and those 2 peices on to the card base using Miracle tape.

And just for kicks I stamped with clear embossing pad and embossed with the ultra high gloss embossing powder the tree background stamp on the envelope.

Stamps used:
Tree background
Witch costume
The witching hour

Items used
