Happy Tuesday one & all! I've got a double helping of scary cards for you today. My first offering is my GDT card for this week's challenge at Papertake Weekly, where we want you use
(ie. purples, oranges, greens, black etc. It doesn't have to be a Halloween card though.)
As you can see, this little Bildmalarna scarecrow is not really that scary at all. That's because this is for my recently turned 1 year old nephew, so I went all out cute & colourful for him instead. He's coloured with Distress Inks & the papers are Fancy Pants - Oct 31st. I embossed the purple co-ordinations paper & the bow was off a chocolate box or something.
This next card is an altogether much spookier affair. But I love the image & I hope my 8yr old son, Jack will too. This is my DT card for Passion For Promarkers, where lovely Lisa has chosen our theme this week, which is
This is Mr Punkinhead from Kraftin Kimmie. He was a doddle to colour & I added Distress Stickles to his eyes & mouth to enhance the effect of the light inside his head. It sounds wierd writing it like that, but you know what I mean. The sentiment comes with the image & the papers are Fancy Pants once again.
The layout for both cards is based on the fab sketch at Quixotic Paperie where they have a new monthly challenge back up & running again. Yippee!!
There are also other Halloween themed challenges that I am entering these cards into at Creative Card Crew, Simon Says Stamp, ABC Challenges, where B is for 'Boo!'
I hope you'll now go and check out the fabulous inspiration of my wonderful D-Teamies at Papertake Weekly & Passion For Promarkers & play along with us this week. There are fabulous prizes to be one, including a £20 voucher to spend at Crafters Companion available at Passion For Promarkers. What re you waiting for!!
Well I hope you are all having a good week so far. Thanks so much for looking.
