I want to wish you a Happy Halloween!
and right for this occasion I have - guess what - a Halloween card!
I mailed all of my cards out, so I had to make a new one....
I used a chevron background stamp from Rubber Necker, which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged metallic ink onto the balck cardstock. I used two different kinds of Washi tape - I just love how the grey Washi tape matches the chevron pattern - it has the same distance - what a coincidence.....The little tag is from an old Stampin' up tag set.
I colored the spider with a neon marker added some twine and a black gem.
Of course, this card will go into a few challenges:
Less is More - use string or twine
The Twinery - Halloween theme
Pinspired - Halloween theme
CASology - Black
I also wanted to share some Halloween cards I got - the first card I got from my blogging friend Susanne - perhaps you saw it already on her blog... So cute! It was so unexpected - it really lit up my whole day! Thanks, Susanne!
The second card is from my sister - not so unexpected - I ALWAYS get cards form her - isn't it great? I love the hexagons and the cool color combination!
And lastly I wanted to share the fun trip my sister and I did yesterday - we went to the Bronx Botanical Garden and did a little shopping on Arthur Avenue - the Italian section in the Bronx.
The Botanical garden is all halloweeny - including the trees!
