DD#20, RS#29 & CFC70

There are so many fantastic challenges in blogland this week and all scream for Halloween to me.  I combined the Dynamic Duos #20: Black Tie Lucky Limeade and Basic Black with a dessert options of  a Halloween Theme along with this week's RetroSketch and CAS-ual Fridays challenges.  I followed Laurie's sketch from RetroSketches pretty closely.  This is my second card for CAS-ual Fridays this week which was black & white plus one other colour.

I pulled out a really old set of Hero Arts wood block Halloween Ink n' Stamp, I am not even sure the name of the set as they don't carry it anymore.  I used some of the images that I could enhance with some Copic markers.  I created some inchies, rounded the corners and mounted them onto 1 1/4" Simply Chartreuse square also with the corners rounded and then adhered them to a True Black panel that had been embossed with Papertrey's Herringbone Impression Plate.  The mummy is a glittered chipboard accent from My Minds Eye Boo to You from my stash.






     




Cardstock:  White, Simply Chartreuse, True Black (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Hero Arts Ink n' Stamp
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Impression Plate: Herringbone (Papertrey Ink)
other: glitter mummy (My Minds Eye), black twine (The Twinery), Copic marker (YG25)

Very cool, Tracey. ;-) I love the little images you used, and that green on the spider's eyes makes him even MORE nasty! LOL. Oh man, I can't stand spiders. I love the herringbone background, too, and that cute little chipboard mummy. And the twine is perfect! Nice job. ;-)
