In this challenge we would like you to create a project using Halloween colours but it doesn't have to be a Halloween creation. One important thing to remember - traditional, old fashion stamping only and no digis, so get ready to get your fingers inky! LOL ;)).
Now onto my card....
It was quite a challenge for me as I don't have that much practice in the Halloween celebration stuff... But once I had the idea in my head...! ;). This was a great opportunity to try out some of my new Tim Holtz stamps so my card came out quite...winged :) Lots of wings to look at!
The background was sponged with orange, yellow and purple distress inks and the edge was stamped and embossed with a black glittery embossing powder. And to add more of a "dark" feel to it I machine sew a spider web, which I think came out quite nicely lol!
Now, the more inquisitive viewers may ask where the commonly expected inhabitant of the web is... Well, let me tell you a secret. Under NO circumstances would I ever stay in one room with a spider (my DH usually takes care of the intruders for me, my Knight in the Shining Armour lol!) therefore there is no reason for any 8 legged creepy crawlies to be invading my card.... So I threw in a few grunge paper butterflies for a good measure, glammed them up a bit with some sparklies et voilà! In real, the colours are much sharper and more contrasting but I couldn't get my camera to cooperate fully...
