Blackletter ATC's

Some days everything goes right!

The October theme for the Cyberscribes ATC swap is Favorite Blackletter/Goth.

I'm allergic to black! and this design has been rattling around in my head for several months.

Using the Cameo, and the Wicked digital file from Quietfire Design, I delved into the dark side and I'm quite pleased with the results!

Even making an edition of 10 was a breeze!

I started by running black note book paper through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Keep the paper in the folder and rub with Tsukineko Brilliance Platinum.

In Silhouette DE software, I separated the "W" from the word "Wicked" and created a white mat for it using the offset function.
Copy and cut!
Neenah 80 lb paper holds even the tiny hairlines.
Using the X-Press It glue marker makes easy play of gluing it all together.

The bling came to me in a swap, and got caught in the web.

The back is packaging from Darice embossing folders.

The pumpkin is from the new Quietfire Design To Give Thanks set, embossed with Ranger Antiquities frosted crystal powder and rubbed with chalk dust- a la T!m Holtz, for the chalk board effect.

The bird? That's my chop. A robin with green eyes and a silver needle with gold thread.

Now comes the hard part- letting them go, sending them on and waiting to see what I get back!

Good practice.
