ASM - Photo ...

... Hi and Good Evening.  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week is we have our Photo Inspiration challenge.  Use the photo to inspire you and tell us what you've used.  This is my card, and I think it's fairly obvious what inspiration I took from the photo:

Halloween Greetings - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Cicely at Halloween
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Poppy Stamps - Swirly Bat Cutout
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Black; Mirri Card - Red, Green, Blue, Gold, Purple; White Embossing Powder; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear


As soon as I saw our photo - I knew what I was going to do.  I cut a panel of black card and used my new die to cut out this wonderful bat.  I cut strips of jewel coloured mirri card and adhered them behind the bat.  I finished the front with a simple greeting using white embossing powder.  On the inside I cut another mat layer of black card and stamped a lovely Halloween verse and a tiny bat on the white panel.

I'm submitting this card to a couple of challenges.  Over at Less is More - LIM#244 the team would like to see jewel colours and I think these gorgeous metallics are certainly that!  I know there's no white space, but there's lots of black space!!!  At Curtain Call - CCICOct the design team are going batty, so I'm playing there too.  Before I go, here's a close up of the bat, where you can really see the jewel colours:

Such a fun take on the inspiration photo, Deborah! I love that you chose foil cardstock for the swirly bat, and that you kept your design CAS! Very cool Halloween card!

cute bat, at first glance i thought you had used metallic sheets or foil for the bat, it's so nice and flat and shimmery, I've never been ale to do that with embossing powder, which do you use? maybe it's the brand and i use the wrong one

Dear Deborah, this is so cool! I needed to have a look at it several times before I could imagine how you made this, nur frankly I am still not sure I fully understood this secret! Creative regards from your team-mate stempelfrida
