In The Night... by Stephanie

This one goes out to all things in the night.

Our design behind this challenge is to see the beauty or the scares that come in the dark.

Show us what you see in the night!

Hello again, Stephanie here! I’m so excited that it’s finally getting cooler here in the south. With cool weather and falling leaves comes my favorite time of year... HALLOWEEN! My project for the “In the Night” is a creepy, fun wall hanging that depicts a Halloween nighttime scene. Look at all those yummy embossed bits!




With this piece I decided to cover it entirely with Emerald Creek Embossing Powders. Full list and links at the bottom. I base coated the piece with acrylic paints including a few Paper Artsy acrylics.



I used an Embossing pen to color the area I wanted to emboss because it’s such and intricate design and multiple layers. I worked from front to back as to not mess up the layers as they are embossed. Tangerine Sparkle is the perfect shade and texture for the jack o’lanterns


The Raven definitely needed Salted Raven Enamel Embossing Powder. On the cross I chose to use Dirty Sand Baked Texture and the tombstone looks eerily awesome in Gunmetal (honestly one of my absolute favorites!) I chose to add some Just Java Aroma to the cross later.



The bats at the top are covered with Onyx Frost and the bats on the right are adorned with Slicked Smoke. Mardi Gras on the pumpkin stems.

I decided the bats needed a lil more color so I layered Dragons Egg on the top bats and Midnight Magic on the right. I really love how well the embossing powders worked together! Also added a base coat of black paint to the rim. Next I used the embossing stamp pad over a stencil and embossed with Gunmetal. Chic Camo embossing powder covers the creepy tree.


I felt the piece still needed a little something and added a ghost and scaredy cat wood cut out. The ghost is covered in Silver Sparkle and the scaredy cat is Slicked Smoke and Vintage Beeswax.


Purple lights around the sparkly ghost.



To finish the wall decor I added some tulle poufs to the top and Cut out a circle of scrapbook paper I have in my stash that has creepy monster eyes. Below are a few images before and after the paper backing was added.








I hope you enjoyed my project this week! This can be done with any wooden decor no matter the theme! I had so much fun working on this!
