Grunge, Ghouls, or Giggles?

Welcome back to another Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge!  The challenge this time is Grunge, Ghouls, or Giggles! 

Here is the description of the challenge:

"Halloween is just around the corner and this week we are getting our hands dirty. Will your makes be frightful and ghoulish or will they be cute and get giggles? Add a touch of grunge to your makes. Cards, décor, scrapbook pages, journal spreads, we want to see it all. We will be most Distressed if you miss out on the spooky cute Halloween fun! Happy crafting!"

 I thought it would be fun to play with some beautiful cathedral windows and make an Arch ATC. I mixed a variety of the seasonal mica sprays, Idea-Ology Layers Halloween Ephemera with some beautiful flowers to make a few different ATCs. 


 I first die cut about 4 different arches in white cardstock and kraft cardstock. I ended up cutting some additional backing or structure from a thin cardboard.  I then Sprayed, Sponged, and embossed each one in different shades of gold, brown, and black. 


 I embossed the arch with a mix of gold embossing powder and brown glaze embossing.  I sprayed the flowers with a mix of the mica sprays.  I then stamped the sentiments and embossed the key to coordinate. 

The owl fit the sentiment perfectly and made me laugh.  I mixed it with a few of the idea-ology ephemera and more flowers sprayed with a mix of inky sprays. 

Come share your Halloween inspiration with us at the Funkie Junkie Boutique! The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.
