Ghoul's Night Out

I've held off on posting this because I keep trying to decide if I want to add a spider to the tree web or not... I would just be making it with a black Pebble and some embroidery thread, maybe some mini-googly eyes or white Enamel Accents. Perhaps I'll still do it; there's time until the event.


This card started out as just the spiderweb tree idea. Then I decided to do the rolling hills in patterned paper. Added inking and stitching and voila! I had quite a lovely night scene. So I made my sentiment match. This card inspired me to invite the "ghouls" out for a treat around Halloween. Not sure of the specifics, but it's as good an occasion as any to have some fun!

I actually sprayed this card with some Goosebumps Shimmer Texture Spray by Tsukineko. It's a great effect but didn't photograph well so I leave it to your imagination!

I'm entering this into Moxie Fab World's Assymetry Challenge.

The embossed tree qualifies this card for CAS-ual Fridays, though I'm not entirely sure this card qualifies as CAS...

Have a terrific weekend!

So cute! Doesn't need a spider, but if you want one, it won't take away from the design. Love waht you did with the hills and tree. hugs xx :)

I think this is a cool design, kind of spooky, a spider might lighten the mood, but gosh I like it as it is.
