Halloween Metamorphosis!

 Halloween Moth Metamorphosis Card


     This monochromatic card depicts the inevitable metamorphosis! This poor "Moth" has reached his end and these ghosts will be guiding him to the other side on this spooky Halloween night!
    The "Moth" is actually the Sizzix Bigz Layered Butterfly die by Tim Holtz. I trimmed a little off the top of each wing to make it look more like a moth than a butterfly. I then stamped and clear embossed the Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz "Mr. Bones" twice on paper from the "Lost and Found" paper pack. I love how the word "curiosity" shows through on the left-hand side! That was such an awesome surprise! 

     The piece of vellum under the moth was embossed with the Sizzix 3D Texture Fades "Lumber" also by designer Tim Holtz to give the moth a ghostly transition.  I used this same folder on the background of the card and rubbed some Distress Oxides into the grain. The "Happy Halloween" is one of my favorites from the "Apothecary" stamp set and the white ghosts are from another Sizzix Bigz die called "Ghosts" that has unfortunately been retired. But don't fret one bit because the new Halloween release contained a set called "Frightful Things" and it has two of what I think are the coolest looking little ghosts ever! 
     Just look at that set! When Tim first introduced it, I could see so many possibilities that my head was just spinning! The ghosts and spider web sealed the deal for me!  And be sure to subscribe see how I used these versatile ghosts in a card called "Tropical State of Mind." Seriously, you're not going to want to miss this card design! It will literally "blow your mind....or at least the mind of Mr. Bones!" Until next time.....Happy Haunting! ~đź–¤Sheila
