Halloween without Orange!

Keepng with the northern seasons of Autumn.Fall and Halloween,  the challenge at For Fun Challenges this week is Halloween related..... so your creations should be a little spooky! We have a twist though.... NO ORANGE!   I used predominantly Purple, Black and Yellow...

Ingredients: Cardstock - Cre8tiv; Markers - SU!; Stardust Pens, Glaze Pens - Sakura; Big Pearl Brad; Lace.

This is the Haunted Tree image from Michelle Perkett Studio.  I love it.  I coloured the image, and added Yellow Glaze pen to the moon and stars, and Black Stardust pen to the tree and bats. After double mounting the image, I realised it was wider thank I thought, so I changed the cardbase from a regular card size, to a larger 'sandwhich board' card - the fold is at the top.  With the extra space above the image, I added a single layer of white lace, then a double bow of thin black lace, fixed with a large pearl brad.

Do pop by the For Fun Challenge blog, and grab some inspiration from the Design Team - fantastic creations this week!  And enter your own creation in the challenge for us to see!  Thanks for peepin!

Great card Pauline. I wish we celebrated Halloween here in Australia just so I could feel justified in buying all the neat Halloween stamps and paper!
