Hi there stampers! This week for TGIF Challenges we are featuring a picture inspiration challenge. The picture is Halloween themed but more classy spooky decor. 😉 I struggled with what pieces from the picture to use in my card but definitely wanted to incorporate the spider web tablecloth.
I started with a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and used the Subtle Embossing Folder that had been inked up with White Craft Ink to emboss the texture into the cardstock. I love the texture the Subtle Embossing Folder gives cardstock and I think it goes with every type of design. I then used the Cauldron Framelits to cut out four spider web die cuts from Basic Black cardstock. I added some Frost White and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paints onto my craft mat which I added a couple drops of water to. I then splattered the embossed panel with the inks. I added some black ink to the champagne shimmer paint and added additional splatters with the black shimmer paint that I created. I then rubbed the spider web die cuts through the leftover shimmer paint to add some shimmer to those die cuts.
I then used the Cat Punch to cut out the cat image from Very Vanilla cardstock. I adhered the cat die cut along with some Silver Metallic Thread and Black Sequin Trim to the center of the spider web die cuts. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings in Tuxedo Memento Black Ink onto a strip of DSP from the Wood Textures paper stack. The sentiment strip was adhered to the cat and spider grouping. This was then adhered to the embossed card panel and I added some Faceted Dots and Rhinestones. The entire panel was adhered to a top folding A2 card base made from Basic Black.
What elements of this picture challenge inspire you? We would love to see what you create so play along with us this week!
