Creepy Crawly


I am back from my vacation, and ready for a break! Hah! Let's just say dive vacations aren't very relaxing, but we did have an amazing time. Pictures are forthcoming!

To jump right back into the swing of things, I pulled up my favorite challenge blogs and combined this week's challenges. There is a fun Halloween color story this week from The Play Date Cafe, and a great inspiration card from this month's muse, Niki Estes, over at CASE study!

I mixed the two together, and here is what I made!

All the images I used are from Wplus9's A Pocketful: Halloween. These little spiders have the cutest expressions :)

I used a Copic multiliner to extend the spider lines so that they would fit behind my sentiment.

I stamped the spider image a second time onto green cardstock and then cut out the spider bodies only and added them to my card with dimensional tape. My favorite is the little guy at the bottom that looks like he's jumping right off the page.

I am glad to be back and so glad that you have stopped by today! Did you know that tomorrow Waltzingmouse Stamps is starting previews for their new release? It is true! And I promise you, you will not want to miss a minute of it - I hope to see you then!
