Time Out #42 - Home Sweet Home Challenge

The new challenge over at the Time Out blog is our Home Sweet Home challenge.  This is where we provide a photo from a room in a home for you to be inspired by. 

Look at this fabulous photo for this challenge!  Love it!
Spray paint dollar store glass candle sticks black and add pumpkins for Halloween decoration
So I was obviously inspired by the pumpkin on the right with the harlequin pattern.  I used an emboss resist technique on a piece of pattern paper.  The paper is from an old SU Halloween paper pack and was a black and white pattern.  I stamped an old SU harlequin background stamp in Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged over it with spiced marmalade distress ink.  I really love the look!  I cut the piece in two parts and stamped the sentiment and spider on the base.  The sequins were on my desk from a previous card, so I added them too.

You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, TaeEun, on the Time Out blog.
