For this weeks card, I wanted to create a fun interactive glow in the dark Halloween card using the All Hallows Eve stamp set along with foiling, Aqua Pigments and the star of the show Glow in the Dark Glitter Glaze.  To begin I added deco foil transfer gel to a piece of Raven cardstock using Newton Nooks Flying Bat stencil. Once it had dried I added purple deco foil and cut a circle in the middle using Circle Foundation Dies. along with a larger circle from clear acetate.  

To create the shaker element I covered a panel of  Raven cardstock  with Glow in the Dark Glitter Glaze. This glaze has an amazing glow!! I have to store it in a drawer because it will glow in the middle of the night on my desk.  Once the glaze had dried I added Spooky Night sequin mix for the shaker bits. I LOVE this mix. There are large pumpkins and spider webs along with smaller elements that worked well with the Glow in the Dark Glitter Glaze
Two sheets of fun foam were used to create the dimensions for the large shaker pieces to move. Once it was adhered to the panel the only thing left was to watercolor the fun characters from All Hallows Eve stamp set. I used Aqua Pigments to watercolor the Frankenstein boy and bat from the stamp set. Once they had dried, I fussy cut them they were adhered using foam squares to the panel under the shaker element and at the top. 

I love how this fun card came out. It is going to my nephews and I am sure they will spend hours in the bathroom or closet watching it glow. 😀

Check out all of the great projects from our team this week below. Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win a 25.00 gift card from Brutus Monroe. Announced on November 7, 2018.
