It is the part of the month where Mou posts a challenge on the Faber Castell blog. The challenge is to create any project for Halloween or Day of the Dead. I try to make a few Halloween cards each year.
This was a fun card to make. I got out my texture paste, gelatos, Big Pens and started to play. The background is a piece of Basic Grey paper which I applied texture paste to through a stencil. I colored the texture paste with gelatos. I wish I would have gotten a brighter orange. The frog (a stamp from Whipper Snapper Stamps) was stamped and colored with gelatos, Big Pen and some distress ink. I wanted a stormy looking sky so I put a layer of distress paint and then used purple, grey and dark blue gelatos to make it look stormy. The weird looking circle is a moon - a very funky colored moon. The brown earth is the Big Brush pen smeared with my fingers. I added a little green in the brown.
I matted the image with several colors of cardstock. Patterned paper was carded to the front. I added stickers from SRM Stickers for my sentiment and the spider. The stitches are also stickers. A spider web was cut with my Silhouette. I added a bow of fabric.
Eventually I will link this up on the SRM Challenge blog.
I am also entering it into the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - where the challenge is to use fiber, ribbon or twine.
Happy Halloween. I do so love getting messy. (Shhh - inside is a big spider hanging down) The person who this card is for - hates spiders.
