Trick or Treat!
For this weeks card I used embossing powders to give the die cuts dimension, depth, and texture.
I started with a card base in white cardstock and sprayed with blue and purple dye ink. I layered the Spider Web Mesh Border on top and spritzed with water. Then removed the Spider Web Mesh Border. This technique lightens the area not covered by the border die cut, leaving a stencil/ghost like effect. I dried with a heat gun. See the wonderful look it created below. If you wanted a more intense look, just let the water sit longer before drying with a heat tool.
I cut the Deutschland Boutique Stacker A2 Frame die cut from black cardstock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then layered onto the card. I added a Spooky Tree which was covered in UTEE and while warm pressed a wood grain stamp into the UTEE to give texture.
My favorite part from this card, is the Trick or Treat sentiment. I cut it out twice. Once in white cardstock and sprayed with green dye ink. This is my base layer of the sentiment. The second was cut from black cardstock, I only applied embossing ink and black sparkle powder randomly to the top of the die cut. I then trimmed and adhered to the top of the green sentiment base.
