The Final Assimilation

Published October 31, 2012 by isisimaginings

Happy Halloween, blog visitors, I hope you’re having a spookylicious day.

This is the second card that I mentioned in my last post & yes, it features the final appearance of the Borg Raven.  For now……

Halloween Bday 1 Bground

This time, I remembered to take a photo of the background.   As before, lots of layering of Dylusions sprays.  I find that, by putting the inks onto craft sheet & swiping the paper through the them – drying after each swipe –  I can build up layers quite effectively.  When I was happy with the base layers, I sprayed Crushed Grape on the craft sheet & spread it around before gently placing the paper on top.  I did that a few times, again drying with my heat tool each time.  I did the same thing on the bottom half of the paper with the Fresh Lime & Cut Grass inks.

The final addition the to he background was to splat Antiqued Bronze Distress stain in places.  LOVE how that turned out!

The tombstones also turned out better than I expected.  The ‘RIP’ was cut from a TH alphabet die & the embossing powder on it is the powder I had left over when I made THIS card.  It’s a combination of all sorts of colours  & I liked it so much I had to keep it.

The second tombstone was a complete accident.  I started with a mixture of black & a rust coloured EP & just kept adding powder & heat setting.  Suddenly, patches of white started to appear, probably because of overheating, but it looked so cool & went with the Halloween theme so well, that I couldn’t complain.

And here he is, the Borg Raven.  As you can see, he has been completely assimilated by the Borg & is terrifying the poor cat, who was in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

I used Sir Tim’s Riveted Patchwork technique, which you will find on page 57 of A Compendium of Curiosities, volume II, or on his blog HERE.

Halloween 1

Here is the finished card.  I used the bunting stamp from Dylusions ‘Further Around The Edge stamp set for the grass.  I can’t remember where the ‘Happy Halloween’ stamp came from, I’ve lost the packaging – maybe Inkadinkadoo?  I think the witch stamp might be from Stampendous, but there’s no name on it.

I really enjoyed making these Halloween cards & next year, I WILL start my Halloween projects a lot earlier.

That’s it from me for now, thank you for stopping by.  Until next time,

Love & light
