Mojo Monday 153 & Embellish Color Challenge

Hey there, and happy Sunday! Just a quick post tonight for the latest Embellish Magazine Color Challenge using squares. What better way to use squares than the sketch at Mojo Monday?

Oh my goodness, did I have fun with this one! Have I mentioned how much I love Halloween? Well these colors just said Halloween to me, and so I made a cute and creepy little card with spiderwebs. I stamped 3 of the chartreuse squares with part of a spider web image, then heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder. Ooh, I love how they sparkle!

For the 4th square, I stamped the circle image with the little spider hanging down, heat embossed it, then cut it out. I added some Glossy Accents for extra shine, and to make the spider string a little more sturdy.

Cardstock: Bazzill (black), Stampin' Up! (Elegant Eggplant), Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse)
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo (spider web), Studio G (spider)
Ink: Clearsnap (Black, Charcoal)
Tools: Marvy Uchida (square punch), Provocraft (embossing folder), Jo-Ann stores (embossing powder), Ranger (Glossy Accents)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse ribbon), Michaels (black ribbon, rhinestones), thread

Isn't that embossed purple background gorgeous? That's my new Cuttlebug folder, which is a really elegant brocade that can also serve as a creepy backdrop when sponged with charcoal ink and stitched with black thread.

I finished things off with a strip of black ribbon layered over Simply Chartreuse, and a few black rhinestones in the corner.

Hmm, I may have to use this as a Halloween decoration this year because I like it so much! I hope you enjoy it too! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great start to your week!
