HDH058 Magical Mayhem

This week we have a "Magical Mayhem" challenge

Again, I assumed that my personal connection to the challenge would make 
this project a breeze.
Have you ever been so determined for a project and all of it's
elements to work that it ends up looking a bit forced or just not
even close to what you had hoped for?
Yeah, me too.
I have worked much harder on suckier cards, but I really had
high hopes for this one.

I broke out with my Witch board (like a Ouija board) image
and used Versamark and stardust embossing powder to give
it a magical glow.
Now I know the jury is still out on whether or not the Ouija board is
magical or not, but how can something mass produced by Parker Brothers
and sold at Toys R Us, have magical qualities?
Just a thought.

I have really been in to the cracked glass effect and wanted to use it on this image,
but the more I handled the embossed piece, the cloudier or less shiny it appeared.
The nice thing about embossing is that you can reheat it and start all over.
I ended up adding stardust powder to the image and then used clear thick embossing
powder to give it a final shiny finish.
I added one of my new frame nesties and some rhinestones to try to 
shine this turd.

Please don't let this have a direct effect on your impression of the 
challenges at Haunted Design House.
The other gals on the DT are wonderful and pretty consistent with their
awesome projects.
Did I mention I don't feel well and have a TON of projects to be completed in the next two weeks? I'm a little overwhelmed.
