Made this card for the Gingersnap *Gothic Elements* challenge. The Ghostly face and the gold background elements have been stamped with Opalite *crystal blush* onto black card, and then brushed with perfect pearls in electric blue and gold respectively. The gothic arch has been cut free-handed from some gold card from a choccie package, embossed with a TH folder and then swiped with black archival ink. The card and arch have been mounted onto a scrap of *Graphics 45* paper with 3D pads. The bat is a sizzix die cut, edged with gold, and is carrying an hour-glass to herald the witching hour. The large bird is from TH, has been stamped with archival ink, black embossed and cut out by hand.... That was where the story got messy - I tipped the pot of black embossing powder over the working surface in the kitchen. Managed to scratch and brush it back into the pot with the addition of some coffee granules & some UCBs - unidentified crumbs and bits, so I am wondering what special effects my next embossing will have....Was great fun to make in spite of it all. Thanks for looking!
