Svitlana is our host this month for Altenew's September 2023 Inspiration Challenge and you seriously MUST see the photo above up close and personally - can you imagine having such gorgeous Halloween decorations gracing your mantle??
I found her colors among two of Altenew's paper collections. For the reds to oranges: Alcohol Ink Background Paper Pack, and for the yellow: Reflections paper pack.
You all know by now that I love this little fancy frame that came with that Reflections paper crafting collection when it released. I've gifted it many times over - in fact, I think I may have wiped out their supply! Here, I've snipped two in half and flipped and glued it again and again to create a fun background for my Halloween roses [actually Altenew's Bamboo Roses]. A little trick as they're stamped onto the patterned paper and cut with the matching dies.
Ready for it?
Isn't this about the creepiest [and I mean that in a GOOD way] card I've ever made??
Here is a closeup so you can see those roses:
The roses stamped quite well onto the glossy finish of the patterned paper
using Archival black ink.
Win or lose, I had a blast making this card - and I have a feeling Svitlana will appreciate it. With that I'll head over to their gallery and treat them to this card!
Have a great day, my friends!
