Hello friends and visitors! Only a few more hours and Brenda's Halloween challenge is closed! I hadn't planned on making another Halloween project just yet, but a Pinterest tablescape caught my eye, and I just had to go play!

Here's the beautiful Halloween table I spotted on Pinterest. Aren't those drinks yummy?

Halloween tablescape.  Love the owl plates!!:

I don't have much time for details, but I will say I used my Tim Holtz Thinlits Doily and Frantic Stamper Fern dies for the first time here. The ferns were cut out of a giant candy bar wrapper and colored with Twisted Citron Distress paint. I colored the stamens and sentiment to match with Distress paint and marker. The doily was colored with black gesso followed by Brushed Pewter distress paint and backed with a handcut and distressed card stock circle. The flowers are store bought from Michaels and given a coat of black gesso and Twinkling H2O's drybrushed to highlight.  I added a couple of layers of Tammy Tutterow's Shabby Posies to make one of them larger. A Spellbinders circle die is covered with Rock Candy Distress Glitter colored with Black Soot Alcohol ink. A snippet of an Impression Obsession twig wreath, a Chit Chat sticker, and a heat embossed owl from Martha Stewart complete my card.


I'm sharing my card with Brenda's Halloween giveaway and these challenges:
Scrapy Land Challenge #51 Anything Goes using any die Scrapy Land sells I used a Sizzix, Frantic Stamper, Impression Obsession, and 2 Spellbinders dies.
Die Cut Divas October is the Time to Emboss I embossed the owl and I guess you could say the background is embossing with stencil and paste.
Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments! I read and appreciate them all!
Hugs and Blessings!
