Magnificent Monday

Magnificent Monday Guest: Terry Blais!
 
 
 
Can you see it? She's not into him. She'd rather watch her pet spider than catch Frankie's dance moves... which are obviously meant to impress. Okay, maybe it's all in my mind. I'm easily entertained! ha ha I love the stamps in the Googly Ghouls stamp set. And when Deena asked me to be a Guest Blogger today, I was thrilled!


My jumping off point was this sketch challenge #145 at Pals Paper Arts.
 
 
I started with an Old Olive card, then added a layer of Pretty in Pink card stock that I double embossed. I inked up the top inside of the Lacy Brocade embossing folder with VersaMark Ink, ran it through the Big Shot, then added clear embossing powder, tapping off the excess and heating it. Here's a close-up:
 
I love that you get two shades of the same color AND that it looks wet in the depressions. From there, I added a piece of Night of Navy card stock that I cut to look like a banner after embossing it with the Square Lattice folder. Frankie and his date were stamped in Night of Navy, colored with Old Olive, with highlights of Pretty in Pink (a combo from my Color Coach!). I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter with a 2-way glue pen to the witch's buttons and hat buckle after outlining the duo in Sahara Sand.
I hope you like it! It's been great fun for me seeing all of the creative projects at the Pink Paper Bakery. Thanks again, for inviting me to take part in your fabulous blog!

It's definitely not in your mind Terry - I see it too! (and I have to say I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off the spider either!) What a fun card.

Love your post today, Terry, thanks for the laugh! I would have never put that color combo together for Halloween, but it looks great!
