Another scrape the deadline job for this challenge, I blew my vagabond up in the week and am with out till Sizzix send me a new one :( really had to rack my brain for this challenge.Over at Haunted Design House the challenge is Eerie Elegance. Now I was thinking I might do something with a nice embossing folder, cut out some fancy dies and muddle something together, bear in mind I am a bloke, Elegance is not a strong trait for me ;) With the death of my dear Vagabond friend I really needed to re think what I could do.Luckily I found this printer tray by Tando-Creative and thought I would do something with that.I also Picked up this great velvet like paper, its a more vivid red than the pic shows, its a little bleached unfortunately. Red and Black are a classic elegant colour scheme, In the top little window I sandwiched a spider web stamped piece of acetate and a spider charm, next to him I sandwiched a piece of the velvet stamped with the red 13 stamp from Tim Holtz. then there is the mini figure, Its brother is on my dark arts book cover, and lastly A flower that has been stamped and coloured with distress inks.The printer tray was painted black and the top was embossed with black embossing powders.The inside cover has some Tim corners and the velvet paper has a few more stamps.
the cover had a couple of Tando swirls again with black embossing powder and a few little sticky roses.
