Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells with Sketch N Scrap card sketch

Welcome to the last of our regular card sketches this month at Sketch N Scrap.  I am getting in the Halloween mood.  I created a textured, spooky card using several Graphic 45 supplies and chunky embossing powder.

Here's the sketch:

at an angle:

I just love this Recollections aged black embossing powder, it is pretty thick so it is not good for detail but it is such a pretty distressed look.  I believe it is discontinued, I am glad embossing powders go a long way.

Graphic 45 Stamps (at least a year old) and Steampunk Spells 6x6 pad
Brilliance Graphite Black 
Wow! clear detail embossing powder
Recollections rose and border stickers
Recollections Aged Black embossing powder and Splat! stamp set (4 years old or more)
Inkadinkado Circles and dots stamps (4 years or more)
Fiskars border punch
Spellbinders label one
misc paper
