Now, on to what I created for this challenge. 

Since this is a new set from Lawn Fawn, and it's Halloween, I HAD to have it. I couldn't wait to make something with it, so I decided on an idea I had to add texture by using embossing powder for the background. 

Here is what I came up with:

To create this, I used the new Lawn Fawn set, Booyah. I chose some fun orange and black papers to coordinate with this Halloween card. 

I used the Happy Halloween sentiments from the Booyah set and stamped in Versarmark on my black piece of cardstock. I embossed those with a clear embossing powder, so when it's dry, it appears to be a shiny black; very subtle! I wanted one of the sentiments to pop out, so I used a white embossing powder on just that one. I love the way it came out!

The ghost has her trick-or-treat bag, which I just stamped onto a piece of scrap Halloween paper and cut out. I cut off the handle so I could add a simple orange and white twine handle for a little fun element.

She has on her bride of Frankenstein costume, which I love. I colored her and her hair in with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers (begonia, black, slate and charcoal) after I had stamped them with Versafine in Onyx Black onto watercolor cardstock. I fussy cut them out, but you can definitely use the coordinating dies for this set! Makes it much quicker!

For the white stripe in her hair, I wanted something fun, so I used some Stickles to add a sparkly accent! I also popped on a few black sequins from my stash as well. 

I hope you're inspired to have a fun time creating for this texture challenge! It's a favorite thing of mine to do. So use that imagination and have fun creating. Make sure you check the Lawnscaping Challenge blog for full details on entering to win.
