Everyone in blogland seems to be in full Halloween mode. Not really my cup of tea, but when you're on a DT you sometimes have to make things that aren't what you would normally make. So for this week's challenge at Cardz4Guyz we are asking for cards on the theme of
BOO (Halloween) or THANKS
Anyway, I got my thinking cap on and made this.
I was inspired by the challenge over at Less is More to include an insect or spider on your card.
I'd seen some funky goggle-eyed spiders on a card somewhere and thought them a bit of a hoot. I quite like spiders, we have plenty of them here in the countryside and at the old house we used to see a rather large one scuttle from the fire across the carpet at this time of year. I found out recently that they are probably males looking for love! Well the deceased one in the guest en-suite was sadly unrequited!
OK, here's how I made this card. I first inked a panel with some DI in Wilted Violet, Seedles Preserve and Stormy Sky leaving a lighter central section, before stamping a star from a Wplus9 set that I added extra lines to to make the body more rounded, then doodled in the legs and added a pair of googly eyes. The background panel was embossed using an old Cuttlebug EF folder and the white letters were cut using dies by MFT.
