Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party! This month we were issued a color challenge...
Okay, I thought this was SUCH a doozy! I have never pushed so many scraps of paper around in my life, LOL! Purple, orange, and black are the colors of the day...and they just happen to be the ones that I reach for the least, eeeek! Since I found them so scary, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to use them on a Halloween card.
I cut some strips of PTI cardstock in the colors Smokey Shadow, Royal Velvet, Plum Pudding, Canyon Clay, and a teeny bit of Melon Berry. I glued them down and ran the whole piece through my Cuttlebug with (an oldie but goodie) the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.
I sprayed the whole piece with some Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz in "Frost", then cut out an oval window with a Nestie.
I stamped Witch Wanda from Halloween Party and then did some fussy cutting (double eek!). I almost called Anya for help, hee! Lastly, I stamped one of the cool vintage patterns from Ovals-Classic Frames and added the fence, sentiment, and a little crow from Hocus Pocus over the top.
I can't wait to see all of the wonderful fall inspiration that you created with this challenging color scheme! You have until tomorrow, Thursday October 18th at 1:30 PM EST to upload your creation to Claire's blog HERE. She will highlight special projects and also announce the randomly-selected winner of a free stamp set on October 20th. Thanks for stopping by today!
