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.
