Hello crafty friends,
Welcome to a new month's challenge here at the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge, which runs from the 2nd to the 28th of the month and the theme is always Halloween... ANYTHING related to Halloween!
I have two cards for you today...
The stamps I used are older MFT ones (Which way is the candy, Spooky Sentiments) that are probably both retired by now (sorry), but they are still some of my favorites. I create both a standard A2 and 4"x8" slim card. I used this month's mood board color of neon green by way of Hero Arts' Neon Ombre Chartreuse to Blue ink pad for all my green background stamping. The A2 card has a vellum panel over the stamped background to tone down the stamped background.
On the slim card I created a flat shaker window. Basically I took a piece of acetate and folded it... making sure to score it well since the folded side would be the right edge of the card. Using strong double sided tape, I sealed the two of the three open sides of the folded acetate. I added sequins and sealed that last open side. Next I glued the acetate behind the card front panel cut out window. The flat shaker sequins move a little when shaken, but not on their own.
Challenge ends on the 28th, winner will be announced on the 1st on the month before the start on the new challenge. For a full list of all the rules please visit Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge home page. unit next time... take care.
