CCC #68.. back in black

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is here (and Halloween is just two days away!) and that means time for a brand new cue word!!   Loved seeing how everyone interpreted last week's cue word, country.  So many beautiful entries.   This week's cue word is "black" which could be tricky or not... lol!!  Joining us in the guest designer spot is the super talented, Kristie!!    All the details can be found here.

 
 

Since Halloween is just a few days away I decided to make one last Halloween card using stamps from Reverse Confetti.    I cut a panel of black cardstock and then stamped the little bat image on the top half using VersaMark watermark ink.  Embossing powder was applied and heat set.  I die cut the banner using MFT's Jumbo Fishtail Flag Stax Die-namics and then stamped the banner with the fence and sentiment in black.  The cat was stamped in black, trimmed out and Black Diamond Stickles were added.   I adhered the cat to the banner using pop dots so it would stand out a bit more.

Thanks for stopping by...I cannot wait to see where this week's "black" cue word take you!  In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen , Tracey and guest designer, Kristie

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & black; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti Spooky Cuties & Spooky Sentiments; Ranger Black Diamond Stickles; MFT Jumbo Fishtail Flag Stax Die-namics; Memento Tuxedo Black; VersaMark watermark ink
