So since I'm in this life, not my parallel Goth existence, I decided to go Goth...ic in my style. I've been meaning to play around with trying inset diecuts, and decided to use the technique here. I've also had this card pinned for two years, so thought maybe I should try being inspired by it.
I completely planned to use the vellum overlay, as in the inspiration card, but when it came to it, I liked it better without. The layout is very similar to the original though. I really like the look of the text tree inset in the black cardstock.
Of course, when you do an inset diecut, you end up with the other halves of the diecuts...
This time I liked the way the vellum looked. I changed the layout of the card a bit, and used an Echo Park sticker sentiment. The papers and stamps are Echo Park as well.
As you can see, you don't need to feel too restricted by our challenge this week! I do feel badly I didn't even manage to get a person into either card... unless that bat is really...? :D So come and link up your Goth or Halloween creations this week! As for me, I'm also going to link these up to the Halloween Simon Says Stamp and the Halloween/orange &black Shopping Our Stash challenges.
