WICKEDly Halloween--ish

I'm back to share the last project I created for the October WICKED challenges over at Splitcoaststampers.  If you missed the details of what this is about see HERE

This challenge called Halloween-ish is to take one or more of the ‘traditional’ Halloween colors (orange, black, gray, purple, green) and use them on a NON-Halloween project.  So I picked the colors Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive as my 'Halloween' colors.  

The main image, from the set Awash with Flowers, is stamped on the oval that comes from the center of the Frame, Scallop Oval Bigz Die. The line art is stamped with Basic Black craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I spritzed the paper with water and stamped the Rich Razzleberry solid image (stamped off twice first). 

After I sponged and distressed the edges, I spritzed with Smooch Spritz to give a subtle shimmer.  The card base is stamped with Versamark and the Sanded Background stamp.  I also used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and Old Olive taffeta ribbon.  

I'd love to see your take on this or any of the other challenges!  If you are a demonstrator registered with SCS, check out THIS thread for details and where to upload.  If you're not a demonstrator, send me a picture or leave a link with your project in a comment and I'll come check it out!
