Ghostly Greetings! {CTD465}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, I am the hostess, and I have chosen the combination of purple, black and white! I hope you love this combination, and the inspiration picture, as much as I do!


I know I say this ALL the time, but I seriously had SO much fun creating this card! I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil to create the cloudy sky, and I sponged on Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. I cut a post it note using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics before sponging on the clouds, so that I would have a “moon” left after adding the clouds. I spritzed the clouds with water, and once the panel was dry, I sponged on Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink for the “ground” using the Drifts & Hills Stencil.

I stamped a tree from Modern Trees using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink, and then stamped two bats from Fab-BOO-Lous Friends also using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. The sentiment, Ghostly Greetings, also from Fab-BOO-Lous Greetings was also stamped using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. I then lightly sprayed the entire panel with a shimmer mist. I cut the three gravestones and the ghost from X-Press It Blending Card using the Fab-BOO-Lous Friends Die-namics, and then stamped them using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink with Fab-BOO-Lous Friends. I colored them with Copic Markers and popped them up with Foam Tape onto the scene. LOVE!
