Textured to Perfection

Today's post is for the Textured to Perfection Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  As the title suggests, the challenge is to use texture in an innovative manner.  Also, I am entering this in Charisma Cardz Challenge:  Black and Orange.

I added these close-ups so you can get a better idea of the depth and texture the Bark roll provides.

This is my Spooky ATC.  I used Bark Roll which I found in the floral department of m local craft store.  It came in either bright green or light beige.  Here I used the light beige and colored it with Wild Honey Distress Stain.  I then used it as the background on my ATC.  The Skull image is from Stampin' Up! and it was stamped on acetate and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I stamped 'spooky' (also a Stampin' Up! stamp) on old text paper then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Inked it over with Wild Honey Distress inkpad then ironed off the clear embossing powder using newsprint.  I embossed 'spooky' again on acetate using black embossing powder and layered it over the spooky on the text paper for a reverse shadow effect.  Hope you like it.  If you want to join in the fun hop on over to Moxie Fab World!
