Day 6 - Graphic 45 Happy Haunting Colleciton

Graphic 45 Happy Haunting Collection
Created by Charlie LaBonte
I am not much of a layout person but I really had fun with this one.  I had recently attended Ranger U and fell in love with grunge board and embossing powders.  I wanted to do something that would allow me to work with both mediums.  I think it turned out pretty cool.

I used 2 of Tim Holtz's Alterations Sizzix dies.  One was the Gothic Boo and the other one was the Word Play die. 

I painted them black(using Claudine Hellmut's Studio Paint "Black") and while the paint was still wet, I sprinkled Adirondack Embossing Powder "Terra Cotta" sparingly and heated the grunge board until the embossing powder had melted.  During this process, the grunge board curles up but then it relaxes and lays flat.  About the time it takes to get a good melt on the embossing powders.   When everything was nice and cool, I painted the edges with Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Paint "Traditional Tan". 

I just had to cut a gate in the fence line.  It just begged to be opened. You can see that I used a bit of purple to give some other color to the layout.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress Pen "Dusty Concord" and Rock Candy Stickles for the greeting.
This will be a very cool decor that I can hang every Halloween now. might even make a great gift.....
