Lexi’s Creations #76 Hallowe’en

Our challenge today is Hallowe’en.

76 Hallowe'en Less Web

We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher for her store

Like my Dream Valley challenge earlier this image was mainly digital. The papers are from Memory Box’s Nightfall paper and I ran it through the printer and printed various witches and bats onto it. It already had the ravens and tree and text. Then I stamped the spooky house from Elusive Images with the tree and scrolly bit and embossed with black sparkle embossing powder. I also stamped a couple of bats from the same stamp sheet and embossed them in black and then trimmed them out. The railings are also from Memory Box, along with the gate. I created the cobwebs in the same was as before on my besom by pulling apart a cotton wool ball. I did try to make them look really old and dusty by running them through dust on my lounge unit (shhh you didn’t really hear me say that my lounge is full of dust!), but although that showed up in real life a photograph didn’t capture it.

The text was from Simply Cards and Papercrafts free downloads.

    I LOVE this card!! The little bats are brilliant with the spooky house. And as for your cobwebs.....genius!! You are so talented that you even managed to multi-task and do a bit of dusting at the same time LOL!
    Thanks for the comments on my cards too, the leaves on my card were peel offs that I coloured with a marker :)
