Fall into Fall: Elizabeth

We don't know about you, but here in the Studio we're ready to push aside the blazing sun and leap, or perhaps just gently fall, into the beautiful colors of Autumn and the happy treats of Halloween.  We hope you will join us as we do just that over the next few weeks.

Halloween is just around the corner and I have a fun silhouette design to share with you!

This card was created with 3 different die cut designs: Penny Black's Snowflake Stitch Frame, Witches Duo and Trees and Hills.  

Let's start with the portion of the design inside the frame.  A white cardstock square was inked with Thatched Straw VersaMagic, Dandelion Mention Luxe, Spring Pansy VersaMagic, and Concord Grape VersaMagic to create a night-time scene.  The positive and negative portions of a die cut circle aided in creating the moon and sky around the moon.  This was then set aside as the other elements were prepared.

The interior elements of the trees and flying witch were die cut from black cardstock.

For the frame, the Stitched Snowflake Frame was die cut from orange cardstock and splashed with red Grumbacher watercolor and dried with a heat tool.  Then the frame was pounced with Watermark VersaMark ink, sprinkled with sparkle embossing powder and heat set.  The finished piece was backed with lime green cardstock to reveal a bit of contrasting color through the frame holes.

All the components were then layered with 3M Scotch Foam Mounting Tape as shown in the picture and attached to a card base covered with Coco Style Designer Paper.
