It’s a green Halloween

This card was made for a challenge but what fab products I got to use!

Based on a theme of green and black I started by using my Tim Holtz Halloween night Texture fade on card coloured with various green Distress stains which was finally edged with his Black soot Distress pad. 

I also used the black to rub over the embossed areas before highlighting with Emerald Treasure gold.

I filled a 7 Gypsies Apothecary bottle with some crystals and added a poison label for good measure. The bow is just same plain cream chiffon stained with various Distress stains and dried with a heat gun.

I also stained some dress lace, added at the bottom and used a Prima flower on top of die cut debris edged in black for additional embellishment. The text is from Tim’s fabulous ‘Simple sayings’ stamp set.

More soon, thanks for stopping by.
