I know...you are thinking.....this card does not look anything that resembles Halloween.
My husband and I love to decorate for Halloween. This year, while doing some major overhaul on the Halloween items we stored, I came across a couple of 19 1/2 in x 26 in sheets Strathmore Chromolux Mirri Sheets. We bought them at a Halloween store. They sold as haunted mirrors and we used them in one of the displays a couple of years ago. I thought about throwing them out but being like most crafters, I look at stuff with the eyes of a crafter and ask...What can I use this for?
Well right then a lightbulb went on and I thought of the Jim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks I had. This reminds me of tin foil and also of silver shining cardstock. I decided to cut them down to size and give them a try. Dies cut beautifully on it and embosses well. The alcohol inks work just perfectly.
For this card, I used Cottage Cutz Lantern & Poinsettia die to cut it out. I colored it using the Jim Holtz Alcohol inks and a small paint brushes. The background was embossed with snowflakes which i think is a Martha Stewart folder.
I am entering this card into the following:
