Emergency Crafters DT Card - Monday 29th October

Hi Blog Friends,

Thanks for your comments yesterday, I did finally get a post written, albeit rather late in the afternoon!

Well it's back to Hallowe'en for the new Emergency Crafters challenge..something Spooky! For those of you who aren't Hallowe'en fans 'fear' not (!) it will all be over after Wednesday! I still maintain that this 'festival' is  just the best for creating - I could go on and on with spooky designs, but promise, just one more after today!
This is my spooky design team project..the card is made using the Dreamweaver Bare Trees stencil (be warned, more of this stencil to come!) on Clarity Card, inked through with a mix of Milled Lavender and Victorian Velvet distress inks. I then stamped the crow on black (Chocolate Baroque Halloween) with Versamark and heat embossed in black. I stamped the sentiment,(same stamp set) again on black card with Versamark and heat embossed in silver. The fence is cut on my Cricut.

The little crooked witches hat is from a pattern I've had for a few years. It's from a US Company called Country Friends, from which I get quite a few 'primitive' design patterns..they are lush! I made this one in a hurry; it's simply made using black glittery felt. When I took the photo, I noticed the shadows and decided to go with it...keeps it spooky!

Promise you a break from spooky-ness tomorrow,

Thanks for stopping by!
