HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP

Time for our monthly blog hop with Artistic Outpost and the theme this month is HALLOWEEN.
I decided to use the GOTHIC 31 plate along with warm tones using rusty hinge and walnut stain Distress Inks. An embossed Halloween panel has been added to the top corner of my card along with a Halloween Idea-ology embellishment.
I have used the cameo frame die to showcase the wonderful Artistic Outpost image, embossing the outside with a halloween bat texture fade and colouring with Distress Inks. I have die cut an oval from the cameo frame and added three layers to give depth.
A double bow from orange ribbon and black twine has been added along with a SPOOKY embellishment.
The sentiment 'All Hallows' Eve' is from the Gothic 31 plate and has been stamped onto white card with black Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks. I have also added the pumpkin along with a Chitchat sticker.
Alpha Parts have been used to add 31 to the cameo frame adding another layer of dimension and interest.
My fellow Design Team members have made some fabulous pieces to inspire you, please pop along and visit their blogs and be inspired along the way.

Artistic Outpost also has a fabulous REFERRAL THEME taking place for August and the theme is ANYTHING GOES using your AO images. There is also a fabulous prize on offer, upload your designs HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x

So fab - love those matted layered frames of black and orange, and those brilliant embossed panels. The silhouette looks simply wonderful on that inky background, and I love the shabby music layer too. Simply terrific!
