spooky...

Hello!!  As our crazy fall weather continues Lisa and I are weathering the storm (ha ha!!) by playing along with CASology.   This week the cue word is spooky and initially I didn't think I would be able to make anything because to be honest Halloween is not big at our house and so I don't have many Halloween themed stamp sets, but then I remembered my PTI Spooky Sweets set... perfect for the challenge!!  I recently purchased some spider web doilies and I used one as a stencil to create my spider web.  I taped the doily down and then pounced on the gray ink.  Once that was done I stamped the spooky sentiment and added some googlie eyes.  A little spider was stamped in the center of the web.  Conveniently there is a rather large spider living right outside one of our kitchen windows so I was able to make sure I had my spider correctly oriented on the web!  I added some glitter to the spider's body for an extra bit of fun.  Since this has a spider on it I'm going to add it to the new Less is More challenge to use an insect or spider.  The new challenge at CAS on Sunday is Halloween so I will add my card to that challenge as well.




Hope you have a wonderful day and make sure you check out what Lisa created.  I'm sure it is clever and spooky!!


Supplies:  Cardstock: white and black; Stamps:  PTI; Ink:  VersaMark Onyx Black, Memento London Fog; googlie eyes; Ranger Diamond Stickles

What a fun Halloween card, Rosemary! Hoping the storm wasn't too bad at your place. We lucked out as it apparently didn't come as close to our coast as they first thought it might. Really nice not to loose electricity or the fence!!

NOt an event we celebrate either, Rosemary, but I love how you were inspired for this week's Challenge at CASology. That dangling spider and sponged stencil web looks suitably scary to me! Thanks so much for joining us!
