Be Afraid

Pop in to the Crafters Cafe and grab youself a challenge.  Choices of challenge are  use STENCILS  or  use ORANGE-PURPLE-BLACK or BOTH.  See what the design team have done and join in, here:  crafterscafeblogchallenge

Thanks to the wonderful Lisa at Decosse Dynamite Doodles for providing the paper, lanterns, frame, raven and washi tape.  Get them here:  decossesdynamitedoodles  : Textured papers: grunge green; Trickortreat General elements: string of lanterns, black raven; Washi: dots, orange stripes; Trick&treat frames: purple arched window

I chose to do BOTH choices.  I arranged the elements digitally, put the green grunge paper behind, then printed.  I stencilled barbed wire at top and bottom, added Glossy Accents to the lanterns, and tied a tiny bottle (with a little silver paint in it) around the matted card.   Muslin is distressed and stuck to the base card, then the top glued on.  But … be very afraid of what is inside ...

Decosse Dynamite Doodles: paper, lanterns, frame, raven and washi tapes. 
Wire Stencil: TCW
Bottle: from the dollar shop
Sentiment: typed/printed on the computer
Glossy Accents, black pearl, muslin & twine from stash.
