Macabre Monday – Monochromatic Monstrosities

Halloween, Haunted Design House, Inkadinkado Add comments

Today’s Macabre Monday challenge over at Haunted Design House called for something sinister in Monochrome.  I thought this would be pretty easy (do you hear an evil laugh?) but turns out, it was harder than I thought it would be!  I kept wanting to add color to it and getting that image embossed just right took some doing (yes, I definitely hear evil laughter…)

So here you have my little graveyard scene.  I embossed the image and some very smooth cardstock I had, but unfortunately don’t recall the manufactures’ name. (I do know it is not Stampin’ Up).  Once I had the right cardstock, it embossing came out pretty good.  I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the spider web on the middle panel. Since it wasn’t showing up very good, I decided to use some Skickles to trace the web.  Not sure if I like the effect or not, but otherwise, the embossing got a little lost.  The back glitter panel is paper by American Crafts.  The spiderweb ribbon, I may have gotten through Oriental Trading, but I can’t be sure, sorry. I have a super bad habit of not paying attention to such things (sigh). 

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies/Details:  Glitter Paper – American Crafts; Graveyard/Raven Stamp – Inkadinkado; Cuttlebug/Spiderweb Embossing Folder; Brads, Pearls, Spiderweb Ribbon (unknown)
