Day 8
"Gothic Nightmare Catcher"
by Val
LeighSBDesigner Val's 31 Days of Halloween inspiration for Day 8 is a wickedly faBOOlous make that is perfect as a hanging ornament or a tag and features SVG Cutz from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!

Using Hobby Craft Black cardstock Val cut the lace overlay stand from my new Gothic Gazing Globe Stand 3D SVG Cutz and the lace spiderweb overlay and bats from my new Gothic Nightmare Catcher SVG Cutz with her Silhouette Portrait 3.  To add strength and lots of wonderful shine she coated all the black cuts with Versamark ink and applied clear embossing powder.

She then cut the matching mat layers from Hobby Craft Smooth White cardstock and coloured them with Burnt Orange Distress Oxide ink which she then decorated with Tim's Clear Rock Candy Glitter applied with a quickie glue pen.  She then assembled her make and coloured the eyes of the pumpkins and bats with a white gel pen and added black eyelash fiber as the hanger.

 Shop the Once Upon a Nightmare SVG Cutz used today and more in the Halloween Sale on now through Oct 31st!

  1. Love the glossy shine. This is a great hanging ornament Val - I am just getting out my last year's box...before that nearly everything was disposed off with the move to Aus...

  2. Great design and textures on this gorgeous make!

  3. The shiny spiderweb looks fantastic! Happy Halloween! Elle/EOTC xx
