Spooky DT post for Crafty Calendar....

Hi bloggers! Well the beginning of another month (where has this year gone??) but that does mean a new challenge over on the Crafty Calendar blog! The theme this month is.... Hallowe'en - did you guess?

Our sponsors this month are:

I made a few box type cards last year and decided to make another one.
You can find the measurements for this card on my templates tab.
I used a Stampendous stamp I've had for a while - Hallowe'en Sprite & stamped with black Archival ink onto white card. I coloured her using Distress Inks  - using them as paints. I decided to use my foils to add some shine, so I went around the flourish with a quickie glue pen. When the glue had gone 'tacky' I applied some copper metallic rub on foil. Then I went around her wings & the Hallowe'en letters with the glue pen & applied some blue metallic foil to the wings & gold foil to the letters. Applied some copper foil to the feather on her hat & added a few spots onto her wings. Inked around the edges using spiced marmalade DI.
I made the box type card from some white card, applied some orange mirri board to the top part, & some brown leather look card to the rest of the card. I matted the sprite image onto some of the leather look card & adhered this to the orange foil.
I stamped the pumpkins onto white card using spiced marmalade DI & some chocolate ink. The face was stamped in black Archival ink. I cut these out, applied some stickles to the face parts.
I stamped the 'boo' (from the same stamp set as the pumpkins) onto white card using black Archival, cut around them. Inked around the edges using crushed olive DI.
I had some Hallowe'en rub ons, placed one of the images onto white card, rubbed it on & cut out.
I adhered 2 of the pumpkins & the rub on to the front of the box part of the card, 2 of the 'boo's' on top of the box part. I made a couple of card 'danglers & hung the rest of the pumpkins & a 'boo' onto these & hung them off the top of the card.
Hope you like it.
