A different take on a Halloween card by designer Lori Williams

Hi everyone, Lori here with you today and I've got some Steampunk magic up my sleeve for you.  I love the eerie side of Halloween...not the gory side just the retro cool side.  So I thought I would create a spellbinding card for you and I was able to pull it off with the help of the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper and coordinating stamp sets.  

Spells card by Lori Williams

I like to layer all my paper pieces with solid backgrounds that give an edge.  This really helps each of the paper pieces to pop and stand out on their own.  I stamped the Spells stamp on a piece of chipboard and then stamped the wings.  I then fussy cut the wings out and curled them a bit before adding them to the back of my center sentiment.  I love the way the wings and the butterfly really look like they are going to take off in flight.  The colors in this collection also really stand out and make such a bold statement...I love it.
