Midnight Dreary by Yolie Burke

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
            Only this and nothing more.” -- Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven

It's Halloween time and time for some serious Edgar Allen Poe readings.  Which is your favorite?  The Raven of course is my all time favorite.  This is Yolie with team eBrush ending week 3 of our Teresa Collins' sponsorship.

I embossed white card stock using the Cabana A6 embossing folder on the Cut N' Boss.

Have you had a technique fail?  I have had plenty of them.  I was planning on doing the emboss resist, but the embossing powder I used has a bit of glitter.  So when I went to rub off the excess ink, the cotton pad snagged on the glitter and left a big fuzz on the card stock.   So back to square one.  This time, I decided to eBrush the background and leave it as is.
I used the Versa Marker and applied it to the embossed stripes, then dusted the iridescent embossing powder.

The iridescent background looks amazing, difficult to capture on film, but trust me it looks great.

The title, banner and the witches are all cuts from Cricut's Design Studio.  I used DCWV's 2016 Halloween Night Stack.

I tried to capture the iridescent background on these darker photos, you'll need to look closely, it's there. :)

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend.
