Quoth the Raven: “Nevermore” Mixed Media Card for Craft Hoarders Anonymous
There’s a new challenge up at Craft Hoarders Anonymous today. Since Summer has just exited the scene and Fall is on center stage, this challenge appropriately titled: “Happy Fall.” I’ve created a deliciously spooky “Nevermore” mixed media card as my inspiration piece. It’s loaded with fun techniques, spook-tacular layers and a gorgeous digital image from our challenge sponsor, Polly’s Paper, which is owned and staffed by the one and only fabulously creative Ginny Nemchak (who also happens to be on the DT here at CHACB. )
One talented participant will win this fabulous prize package from Polly’s Paper!
Add a Little Dazzle also provided us with a wonderful assortment pack of metal art sheets that were wonderful to work with. You’ll learn more about them in our next challenge!
“Nevermore” Mixed Media Card
Ginny provided the design team with an amazing selection of digital images (which you can download from her ETSY shop. Enabler alert: This shop is filled to the brim with gorgeous creativity kits, digital images, hand made cards, minis, banners. It’s one of my favorite places to shop online. I selected one of the ravens from her fabulous “Nevermore” Halloween Digital Collage Printables.
This is a 6″ square side fold card. The papers are old, old, old…Bo Bunny, and it was a wedding collection, to boot! I also dug into my stash of dies, and cut some black metal from Add a Little Dazzle using the Weathered Clock die from Tim. I pulled out my hoard of embossing powders and mica flakes and added them to the clock. I found a sheet of gold embossed paper that I’ve had for ages and colored it with distress inks, then die cut it with the Sun Kissed Fleur Die from Heartfelt Creations for the flowers.
I treated Ginny’s image with UTEE and sprinkled in some Mica flakes and Stampendous aged copper embossing powder. I love the way it transformed the already fabulous image.
I had to create a custom envelope for this one, and here’s a peeky at that.
I have to confess, I’m pretty darn happy with my “Nevermore” mixed media card!
Here are the guidelines for Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #17: Happy Fall Y’all!
Many of us like to purchase NEW seasonal products every season. What happens to last year’s Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving products? We HOARD them! Drag out those hoarded fall themed items and make a project to share with us. You can make something for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving or any other fall or harvest celebration.
You’ll want to link your NEW project up to the Craft Hoarder’s Anonymous BLOG before midnight PT on Sunday, October 19th. I’ll be stopping by to take a look at your gorgeous creations.
