Halloween Graveyard Haunting

I hope everyone is having a fabulous fall!  For this month's project, I wanted to celebrate Halloween - in particular Halloween Graveyard Haunting!  There's certainly a trend toward decorating for Halloween as we generally do for Christmas.  Globecraft Memories ornaments are perfect for the celebration!  

When I first approached this project, I had ideas...but really wasn't sure how to execute them.  And here's my confession...I was having so much fun creating - I FORGOT to take pictures along the way!  However, steps are outlined below...and what's more important - I summon you to give this a haunted try!

Supplies Used
  • Cover the middle layer of the Little Fancy Oval Bubble Frame with Green Cardstock.  Distress edges with black ink.  (Use the rest of the bubble frame for another project!)
  • Emboss the Orange Cardstock with Sizzix Embossing Plate (Flower Rings).  Distress flowers with black ink.
  • Emboss the center layer (design) of the Halloween Graveyard Haunting Ornament with Black Embossing Powder.  For a matte look, Copic markers work well!  Actually, just about any media works great - try your favorite!
  • The ornament frame comes with two bubbles.  Paint the back bubble with Black Acrylic Paint.  You will need to paint several layers - allowing to dry between layers.  Acrylic paint dries quickly, though, so this project can be finished rather quickly.
  • Once the back bubble is solidly coated with Black Acrylic Paint, add one more layer.  While this layer is still wet, sparingly cover with Silver Glitter for that full-moonlight effect.  Allow to dry - shake off any excess glitter before assembling bubble frame.
  • Assemble Bubble Frame - Orange Layer on top of Black Embossed Design Layer on top of Green Layer.
  • Add Ribbon Bow to the Ornament Hole.
