Radiant Gradient - Spooky Style



The Moxie Fab Gradient is Radient Challenge ends on Monday and I wanted to get a few cards in. This also fits the Caardvarks Take a Bow Challenge. This was a technique heavy but super fun card. I created the background using distress inks on white cardstock by blending them together with the Ranger Ink blending tool. I then inked up a Cuttlebug embossing folder with black ink using a brayer and ran my gradient background through my Epic. After the ink dried, I added "Boo to You" in white embossing powder. To finish off the card I mounted it on black cardstock, added some bling, and a fabulous bow. To spookify the elegant bow I cut out a scull and added it as the centerpiece.

Happy Halloween!

Supplies:
Paper:
White cardstock (Neenah); Black cardstock (SU!)
Ink: Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Marmalade, Black Soot (Ranger Ink); Versamark
Stamps: Boo to You (Studio G)
Extras: Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug); Bling (Kaiser); Ribbon (American Crafts); Embossing powder (Stampendous)
