Halloween Black Widow



Good morning bloggers, visitors and friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I know I did, but phew, was it busy! I'm ready for things to calm back down!

I have a new card to show you, today.  A fun Halloween card! I went with a masculine theme and colors on this one because its for one of my bestest friends, who in Florida. A friend who always appreciates a handmade card.

My card uses the image, La'Spyda, By KennyK, colored with Promarkers. I attempted, for the first time, to do some blending of colors in the image. I'm not completely thrilled with the results, but it's a start and everyone has to start somewhere, right?! Hopefully I will be encouraged to keep trying with the blending and will learn as I go.  I used these fun Halloween papers from my stash. (Don't you just love the chevron paper with the glitter?!) I found these really cool die cut glittery spider webs at Archiver's a couple weeks ago and couldn't wait to use them on a card! Aren't they really cool?! I love, love, love them! Oh, then, of course, there's those creepy crawly spiders, made from a mini punch by EK Success. I used a white opaque pen by Signo to make the legs of the spiders stand out, then added glitter to his body with a Clearstar Gelly Roll pen, to make him stand out. I also used the clearstar gelly roll pen to add sparkle to her dress. The spiders were attached with foam mounting tape for dimension and 3D effect. 

I love the crispness of fall and I consider orange and black to be fall colors since I love Halloween and Halloween is in the fall!
