Guest Blog: Halloween Lightbox

Thank you for joining us for the “By Royal Appointment Guest Blog” post. This week’s project is a Halloween Lightbox, designed by me, featuring the Stampin’ Up! Wonderfully Wicked Bundle, with decorations from Everything Festive and Boo to You.

The Guest Blog is something we will be doing every Monday, each week we will be welcoming a different designer from our amazing team, the Royal Stampers, This week I was the guest designer, I hope you enjoy my post…

Halloween Lightbox

My project is a wonderfully spooky Halloween light box.

The template of this was from the Sara (one of our Guest Bloggers) produced for a Shoebox Swap. The original project swap was created on a couple of days spent by some members of this group crafting by the sea in August. Please see my earlier post for this project. This lightbox is created recycling packaging from one of the Stampin’ Storage products. Please refer to a later post on how this lightbox is created.

I also used a technique Barry and Jay (another Guest Bloggers) introduced me to… Using Whisper White Craft Ink plus re-inker (Gorgeous Grape) to blend the background. In this case onto vellum to produce the window. This technique mixes craft ink with re-inker 1:2 parts on a messy mat and then blend with a sponge onto the cardstock, and produces a lovely milky, coloured effect.

I created my own ‘DSP’ with on Basic Gray ink on Basic Gray cardstock, using the spiders web from the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp set. Which was then cut to size, scored and a window cut using the Stitched Labels Nested Dies.

I decorated it using elements from the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set – don’t you just love this cute little cat.

The glittered elements were produced by mixing Stampin’ Glitter Dazzling Diamonds with re-inker to create coloured glitter (allow to dry fully before using).

It was also decorated with elements from Boo To You and Everything Festive. The little monster was coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

As it gets darker the lightbox becomes more and more spooky…
