Happy Friday, everyone! It's time for another As You See It challenge.....and it's a Halloween "scary" challenge!
I love Halloween but I'm not a big fan of the scary stuff! Then I remembered I had a whole tablet of Tim Holtz vintage Halloween images and some of them are a bit scary, in a fun way, so I sliced off a big piece featuring several images and made a larger-than-normal (5 1/4 x 6 1/4") card:
I found a piece of textured Sahara Sand 12x12" cardstock in my stash that matched my images pretty well, so I used that for my base; I did a couple of rows of zig zag stitching around the edges of the Halloween paper and then attached it to my card.
I found this seam binding at a yard sale a long time ago; it's rayon and I think that made a difference when I shabbied it up for my bow! It's very soft and it crinkled up a lot when I added a little So Saffron ink to dye it and then scrunched it up and heat-set it in my microwave!
But I love the effect it created when I made it into a bow:
I also had some Tim Holtz Seasonal Stickers that I adhered to scraps of the textured cardstock and sponged with different colors, then cut them into banners and tied them to the center of the bow! They are my favorites! And here are some closeups of some of the images from the TH papers:
I had to laugh at this one; you can't see the words because of the stitches, but it says "Courage for Halloween"!!!!
I added some Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and Champagne glimmer paper stars, and the front was done! And here's a semi-scary image for the inside:
Speaking of scary, Cassidy carved her jack-o-lantern a couple of days ago:
Yep, it's pretty scary!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
