Going Gothic

Todays card was created for this weeks challenge over at Kenny K's, the theme this week is titled "Going Gothic!" which is something quite close to my heart. :-)

I decided to try a twisted easel card for this one, again 6x6 in size.  The purple backing paper is from my Kanban stash.  I've used my black frantage embossing enamel with some gold glitter glass around the edges.  It's the first time I've used that stuff and I think I'm quite pleased with how it looks.  It's just a shame that the pictures haven't been taken in very good light..........daylight was rapidly fading!

In the centre of the card I've used yet more of my Kanban cardstock.  Both cut from the same piece but the one underneath was coloured with my promarkers!  They were then matt & layered onto black cardstock, stitched around the edges and a piece of polka dot ribbon added down one side.  The gorgeous image is Trixxie Treat, from Kenny K's halloween collection, and of course was coloured with promarkers!
I've then added some cobweb corners from my collection of Cheery Lynne dies, which I've inked over very lightly using black soot (I think)!!
The base of the card is the same Kanban backing paper, but this time it got matt & layered onto black cardstock and stitched around the edges.
The stopper on the base of the card is again a Cheery Lynne border die, cut from the same black cardstock!  Then finally I stamped a sentiment, die cut and inked it with black soot and then put some sticky gems on the edges!  There you have it, I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it!  :-)
