C.R.A.F.T. Challenge No.23 Halloween




This week's challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is Halloween, we had to do it at some point. I love Halloween, trick or treating with my 8 year old all dressed up, and the weather starting to get colder, going into late Autumn.
For my card I've used a spooky house digi image from Digital Delights, coloured it with pro-markers in oranges and greys/black, and added some orange gems to the top. I've used the pumpkin Cuttlebug embossing folder, distressed it, then added spiced marmalade Distress ink to it. The pumpkin image is stamped, cut out, then framed with a metal embellishment. The spooky stamp is stamped with black soot Distress ink and I've added bits of it around the word to make it look more 'spooky'. The DP is MME Boo to you.
The prize this week at C.R.A.F.T. is a lovely digi stamp and digi backing paper from Gina at Your Special Delivery.
I'm also entering this card into a few challenges:
1. Stamp Something - Halloween
2. Daring Cardmakers - These are a few of my favourite things, to use at least 5 of your favourite things. Ok, my favourite things are Cuttlebug embossing folders, square cards, gems, the colour orange, metal embellishments and lastly digi images from Digital Delights. (that's 6, I added an extra incase any of them don't count).
3. Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - orange and 1 other colour. I've used shades of oranges and greys.
4. Crazy For Challenges week 8 - It's all geometric - use at least 3 different shaspes. I've used a square, rectangle, oval and circle.
5. The Pink Elephant - the colour black, hardware and distressing. I've distressed the embossing and used a metal embellishment.
6. Cuttlebug Be Inspire #55 - to create something with your 'favourite' on it. I've listed my favourite things already, but will add again that it's my favourite colour orange and my favourite time of year.
