MC Oct/13 - Owl - Haunted
I was rummaging/tidying up in one of my drawers and came upon this paper towel. Normally when I wipe up paints and stuff, I keep the paper towels for backgrounds and they just get shoved wherever... That's what this one was. I thought it would be perfect for a Halloween card... So I split the layers adhered it to cardstock using Saran wrap and an iron and added some glue where it didn't quite stick. Trimmed it down and started adding my elements.
My main card base is side folded (5"w x 7"h) purple cardstock. Stamped the owl and birds in tree images (Local King Rubber "What a Hoot") with versafine black Onyx and clear embossed only the owl image.
Electronically cut the word haunted (Quietfire Design - Silhouette Online Store) from white cardstock and while still on the mat, colored with Distress pads - "Seedless Preserves" for the top layer and "Black Soot" for the shadow layer. When adhered to card, I added Glossy Accents to the top layer.
In another drawer found these two little pieces of Halloween ribbon and adhered them to the corners. Added purple brads. Also found the purple netting... which I attached using Tim's tiny attacher. Adhered this layer to my main card.
I really like the look of this card. Click on image to enlarge. Enjoy
