I had worked on some backgrounds with the new Tim Holtz alcohol inks and used one of the backgrounds here.
I am not sure of all the colors I used, but I do love the effects of the metallics. I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Postage Stamp Dies at Cheapo Dies for the card below. I used clear Wink of Stella on all the houses, but I think I should have used black glitter paper. I just didn't know what I wanted to do with my houses when I cut them out. I cut off the odd shaped chimney from the top left side of this wonderful wonky Haunted House as well as shortened the house from the bottom. It works here.
I hope you can see the plastic windows here. I was able to keep all but the right steeple.
You can tell which window didn't retain the plastic window here. I cut the plastic with the same die and the small windows didn't cut all the way through, which was what I wanted.
Next card, I also used a mixture of alcohol inks, but I made this background a couple years ago, using the older inks and pulling the paper through the mixture of colors on my mat. I thought googly eyes and red moon (also from an alcohol ink sheet) would be an element of scariness to the scene.
I think the leaf here is from a Stampin Up stamp a friend lent me, while the moon is cut from the Die-namics STAX Pierced Circle dies.
In my last card, I used a beautiful background I made using the new Alcohol ink colors. I love it.
I cut the rounded square QuicKutz (Nesting Frame 4) dies on black glitter paper and a "party" die from Little B Handwritten die set. I can't find these nesting dies anywhere now. Since the windows in this house had such a great background, I just added Glossy Accents to the windows.
