Spooktacular

It's Halloween season! And here is the first Halloween card that I have ever made...ever. I'm not a big Halloween person. As a kid, I loved all of the candy. But now as an adult, I just haven't found any compelling reason to get into the witchy spirit. Well until I saw how awesome Halloween crafts are! I have seen some really cool stuff this year and have a few tricks up my sleeve. But onto this card and it's challenges.

The Challenge #1: Use the colors Pear Pizzaz, Night of Navy and Perfect Plum.
The Challenger #1: Scrapmaster's Paradise (however, I was too late and didn't get to enter it)

The Challenge #2: Make a project for this week's theme - Halloween!
The Challenger #2: Pals Paper Arts

The Challenger #3: Cut the photo or picture!
The Challenger #3: Frosted Designs

So, Halloween and incorporating those colors was pretty easy together. I love purple and green together for Halloween. Much cuter than orange and black. Cutting an image however was a new thing for me. I printed the image from a kids coloring website and colored it with my stamp markers. I wasn't sure what color to use for the moon, so I took a cotton ball dabbed it on a blue ink pad and then smeared the color around the moon. I like that it colored the moon enough to leave the ghost looking pure white. I'm really happy with how it turned out, especially after cutting it.

The next part is evidence of how to take a mistake and make it into art. When placing the main image I didn't center it. at. all. So the left side had a blank area that needed to be filled. I had some buttons that matched the color challenge really well, so I lined them up! Add a little gold Stickles and you have a complete card!

Thank you to this weeks challengers...I'm really happy with how it turned out! I am working on another Halloween project and I plan on having a video up soon!

Supplies used:
Main Image: Hello Kids
Markers: Stampin' Up and Marvy Matchables
Buttons: The Paper Studio
Gold Dots: Stickles
