Happy Halloween Luminary card #2

YAY!  Only 2 more sleeps 'til Halloween!

Yesterday I shared my 1st luminary card and here's my 2nd.  This one I made for my sister using Bugaboo's dig stamp, Happy Halloween Circle Silhouette.

in daylight you can see the pretty vibrant colours
 I pretty much made this one the same way I made the luminary card I shared yesterday.  For this one though I altered the colour of the orange decorative pumpkin paper I scanned and used on my other card and made this one purple and I used red and yellow Alcohol Inks on the transparency.  I completed the front of the card with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink applied to the outer edges and applied Crystal Stickles glitter glue around the circle and the flourishy parts of the web.  I also added Viva Pearl Transparent Magic White dimensional dots all the critters eyes and on all 4 corners of the card.
The card above shows the true colours but then the magic happens in the evening when you turn on the flameless tea light hidden inside the card.

so pretty in the evening with the glow and the sparkle on the web
In the photos below you can see how the card transforms in different lighting, from daylight to darkness.

Here's a closer look at the sparkly web and also a view of the inside of the card.  I used different decorative pumpkin paper for the inside of this card which was also stamped with a scene by PSX and the word BOO (can't remember who made this foam stamp set..possibly All Night Media) in black Versafine ink.
