Hello Boo-tiful!

Happy Thursday! This week has flown by, and it's already time for another Play Date Cafe post. This week's the challenge is a color splash with plum as the color:


That plum color is so pretty, and it instantly made me think of Halloween. I got out my new Teri Anderson Technique Tuesday stamps and made this card:


That spider just cracks me up! I love these stamps. :)

I started off by misting black cardstock with Graphite and Blueberry Metallic mist and then embossing the spider and sentiment over. I'm not sure if it was misting first or luck, but I had almost no stray embossing powder to remove (with embossing powder that never seems to cooperate). I'll have to try embossing over misting again to see if it was a fluke.

Here's a close-up so you can see that cool metallic mist:



And since I am officially addicted to metallics at the moment, I made some metallic confetti. I took sequins, punched holes in them, and used the punched pieces. My husband thought I was completely nuts when he saw the residual sequins on the dining room table. hee hee
