Day 30 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! Can you believe that this is almost the end? I sure can't.... Today I have a card featuring a Dreamweaver Stencil (via Stampendous). And I used one of my favorite techniques with embossing paste.

The technique I used is called Molten Metal. Basically, you spread your embossing paste over a stencil, remove the stencil, then tap Metallic F/X powder on to the wet paste. I usually use a brush to to this. Then, I heat the paste with a heat gun until it starts bubbling. Brush off the excess, and then you have this great effect! I used Forestry, Nouveau Orange, and Purple Satin over Glossy Black embossing paste.

I spritzed the background of the bats with Tuxedo Black Fireworks! Spray, plus I rubbed some Black Shimmer Delicata ink around the edges. Both are from Imagine. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!
