This week on Cute Card Thursday we would like to see something scary on your creation, not necessarily Halloween, you could just go for spiders or something else that's scary! I expect that most of us will go down the Halloween road and I found this digi image partly coloured in my box so thought she needed finishing off. She was a freebie from Mo Manning ages ago, so not around anymore, and not particularly scary - although that mask makes Bronte look rather scary IMO! I couldn't find any papers that would go so instead I stamped spiders webs (Magnolia) and bats (PB) onto a piece of orange card then matted it onto black. I found a length of purple lace to wrap around, then cut out a black square from Marianne die LRO234 (will I ever get tired of using it), and a black scallop mat for my image so it could be 3d mounted on top with foam pads. The pumpkins are Magnolia stamps and the Boo text is from a clear Penny Black set. A little piece of purple silk and a black button to anchor my coffin shaped text finished things off. The image and pumpkins are coloured with my Copic pens - but sorry no list of colours today as I had to clear the table so we could eat! My crafting is spread out around the bungalow .. .. the pc is in my bedroom so here is where I blog, I tend to colour in the evenings at the dining room table with the aid of my daylight lamp, then when it comes to putting the card together all my stuff is in the conservatory. The only problem comes when I'm blogging and can't remember what I've used and have to get up and go and find out .. .. ah well at least the walking is exercise!
There are loads of Halloweeny type challenges around at the moment so I'm going to link up to these ones:
Crafty Catz, Sweet Stampin', Digital Tuesday, Cutie Pie, Everybody Art, Moving Along With The Times, Crafrty Creations, Creative Inspirations and Party Time Tuesday. Gosh! I don't think I've ever entered so many challenges with just one card .. .. but then I don't have reason to make more Halloween cards this year so it's one for all!
