G45 Steampunk Spells with Creative Embellishments!!!

Hey there crafters!!!  Today is my first post with my new DT over at Creative Embellishments!!!

Here's a look at this month's inspiration photo:

Your challenge is to ALSO DISTRESS (any number of ways to accomplish this technique!  Feel free to use one, or all of them!

 And here is my project:

This is one of my all time favorite collection from Graphic 45!!!  Halloween is absolutely my most favorite holiday to decorate for so this challenge was "right up my alley"!!!
I started by layering up all my papers, distressing them with black ink along the way.  I added a fancy oval frame that was inked, misted, and coated with distress crackle paint in rock candy!  I added liquid pearls for accents :-)

I finished the card with a steampunk corner that was inked with Iced Spruce and Black Soot distress inks, as well as other embellishments from this collection!

My first Halloween card of the year!!!  You'll be seeing a lot more in just the next few days ;-)

Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
