DRS Designs & Merry Monday Challenge

This week's challenge at DRS Designs is to use witches on your card. Here's my card for the challenge.

The image was stamped on not quite navy card stock with versafine ink and then embossed with detailed black embossing powder. I sponged in some white and yellow chalks for the moon and windows of the house. The backgrounds were created with the Spooky Eye background and the Eeek Background. The Happy Halloween was stamped in Memento Black on green, layered on black card stock that was punched with a spider web border. Some black ribbon was added to the right side to finish it off.

I hope you'll stop by DRS Designs and join in the Halloween fun. You could win some awesome new stamps!

I finally found some time to play in Lesley's Merry Monday challenge again.  Here's my card for this week's sketch challenge at Always Playing with Paper.

I stamped the giant poinsettia three times, colored them with copics and Spectrum Noir markers, cut them out and layered them with glue dots.  The sentiment was stamped on white, cut with nesties and layered on cranberry. I added three gold half pearls to the flower so I could also enter this in today's Ways To Use it Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,
