Halloween Luminary

Hello LCD Fans!
Leigh here to share the Halloween Luminary I made for the spooktacular 31 Days of Halloween blog hop we, the LCDesigners are playing in over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity which is our blog for all our fun events and challenges!  Pop on over and become a follower so you don't miss out on our fun activities, you could win some fab prizes!

I used two of our Carmen's Veranda stamps to make my luminary, Halloween Background and the
Flying Skull.  

I'm really pleased with how it turned out and
YAY, LOL ;0)
I designed my luminary to be gorgeous in daylight and in the dark which you can see in all the photos below!  The glow is ever so pretty in the dark and look at the cool pattern it casts on the wall too!

I love working with faux stained glass effects and this one came together nicely.  The luminary is quite large, measuring at 5.25" square and 6.75" high.  I've got a tall 3" wide flameless candle in there but you can easily create a candlescape with a few in varying sizes.  The photos above show the luminary with a white paper insert acting as a light diffuser and the last photo shows it without for more of a stained glass effect.  In the photos below you can see how pretty it is in daylight too.  I stamped 4 panels of clear artist's overlay acetate with the Carmen's Veranda Halloween image in jet black StazOn ink and applied Watermelon and Sunshine Yellow Ranger Adirondack Brights Alcohol Ink with an ink applicator.   I designed the cardstock frame to fit the stamp perfectly, cut eight window panels with an Xacto knife and stamped them all with CV's Flying Skull in Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink.  Even in the dark the pearlescent ink glows too.  The frame folds were scored on a scoreboard and the acetate panels adhered to the inside of the four front facing windows and the remaining four were added to the inside for additional stability and to make the inside look just as gorgeous as the outside.

Don't forget about all the fun activites going on over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!  We currently have 3 faBOOlous prizes you can win so pop on over and Stay to Play!
