Trick or Treat

Hello and thanks for dropping by to visit my little bit of Blogland and a special hello to my lovely followers.

I've never made a Halloween themed card before as I never send them or get asked to make one, but as so many challenges at the moment have this theme I thought I should have a go... especially as Donna at Bearly Mine Designs has some fabulous freebie papers that are just crying out to be used.

I printed both papers onto card and cut out the centre of the orange one to leave just the cobwebs as a border and then layered them both on to black base card. I hadn't got a Halloween Tilda but thought this one would be suitable for going out 'trick or treating'. I coloured her with Promarkers & Aqaumarkers and sat her on a cobweb with sticky pads. Finally I added a couple of clipart bats and used sticky pads for those as well.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
TOMIC Magnolia challenge 'Halloween + bat + purple/orange/black'
Totally Tilda challenge 'Halloween Tilda'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'Halloween and/or Autumn Colours'
Ladybug Crafts challenge 'Halloween and/or Favourite embellishment'
Scraphouse challenge 'Halloween or Purple'

Hope you all have a good weekend, whatever you're up to
