Hello all.....I had time to play today!! So, I decided to take a stab at a challenge. My fellow stamp friend, Barb, has started some fun Halloween challenges on her ALL Halloween blog called Haunted Design House. Well, the first one is called Wicked Thicket. She said "use those pretty spring images and create a little darkness". It was a challenge, I tell ya!! I do like how it turned out!! Certainly wouldn't have used this "flowery" stamp set for Halloween!!! LOTS of sponging with several different colors to get that look on the green cardstock. I got out my shimmer spray for over the flowers......my spray pump stopped working so I just "splattered" it over the flowers and rubbed it in with my fingers. Oh yeah, you have to have jagged edges on a spooky card, right? Got out that old edge distresser and went to town and I didn't even care that the paper tore!! Added to the effect!
Well, let me know what you think.....this was certainly "out of my comfort zone." Thanks for stopping by!!
