How could I not play along with the spooky halloween challenge over at One Stitch At A Time after receiving my fabulous freebie image for guessing in the Saturday game. I received this lovely image called Alexandria from Stitchy Stamps. I wanted to try somethng new (well new for me anyway I know there are loads of you out there that do this and beautifully too) so anyway I printed the image onto some computer acetate and then got out my glue with fine tip and glitters that I bought in Exeter and I went glitter mad! I usually only use a sprinkling of glitter but have decided to give glitter a real go and this is my end result. There are a few things I'd do slightly different next time but on the whole I'm quite pleased with my first attempt which is good as last night I was convinced it was going in the bin! I ave mounted her into black card with the aperture cut away using a Go Create die and I have also used the same die to cut a piece of white for the inside of the card. The small images around the outside are Daisy & Dandelion stamps stamped in versamark and then mica pigment added (Ria helped with this bit as she thought it was such a cool technique. And there you have it my spooky halloween card.
Its really difficult to take a good pic due to the acetate and all the glitter but I hope you get a reasonable idea of how sparkly it looks.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
