Halloween Spooks!

A week till Halloween! It's only fitting, then, that this week at Crafty Creations Challenges our theme is Halloween spooks. Monsters, spiders, haunted houses... you get the idea, I'm sure. I think this is the last Halloween card I need to make this year, so I decided to go all out:

All the stamps I used are from the bins at Michaels! I like the not-too-scary look of these spooks. It's hard to tell from the photo, but they are stamped on a very pale green, with a strip of the same cardstock on the edge of the inside of the card. The bats and spiderwebs are stamped on the white card base, then sponged with two shades of purple. Everything's heat-embossed, of course. 
Also since I think this is my last Halloween card for the season, I'm linking this to a couple of Halloween challenges, at Tuesday Throwdown and My Grafico
Our generous sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy! And remember, we are happy to see any crafted creation, not just cards. So let's see your Halloween spooks! 

Supplies: white & pale green cardstock, Karen Foster goblin mist patterned paper, Craft Zone (Michaels) stamps, Brilliance graphite black & milled lavender, dusty concord & iced spruce distress inks, Spellbinders circle die, clear embossing powder

Pin It Now!

Your colour scheme is a refreshing change from the halloween orange and black but still has an eerie feel to it.
