HALLOWEEN VOTIVE - A "FLOCK" OF CROWS

Evening everybody.

I love this votive kit by That's Crafty.  I've used their Dinky Crow Stencil (one of my favourites), some Dreamweaver stencil paste and some black flock for the crows. The tree is stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder. The wrought iron fence is stamped and embossed in black to bring it to the foreground.  When lit, the votive will cast crow shadows around the room.




You may notice the panels at the side don't look as clear and shiny as they should. That would be because I forgot to take the backing film off one side of the panel. I've only just realised as I was uploading the photo's. Duhhhh.. What a Plum! If you haven't used acrylic before. Don't forget to remove the backing film from BOTH sides - LOL

  3. As you say, what a plum but (frankly) you'd have gotten away with it mate as I think the project looks simply splendid.

    How's that cold?

  4. Easily remedied, thank goodness :oD. I've been kicking myself since I noticed it.

    Annoyingly, still battling the cold. Night Nurse has been deployed and I'm off to bed in a mo.

  8. Wow - this is magical, Lauren! It has a hint of mystery and a Gothic touch, but the transparency makes it so ethereal - amazing!
