Halloween at The Paper Shelter

Good morning, hope you are well and here's a big hug if you aren't! Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter.  The theme this week is Halloween and I have made a card:



This beauty is called Witching Hour and lives here. I coloured her with my Copics and she took an age to colour!  I added some Glossy Accents to the glass flask, brooch, her eyes and the snake's eyes. I used Go Kreate XL No 1 frames for the card shape and mat.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I coloured the purple ones with my Copics. The paper you can just see is Basic Grey Marjolaine.  I edged around the image with Weathered Wood DI and used a corner rounder punch on the corners.  I also added some black webbed ribbon and a plastic spider from Home Bargains.



As usual there is a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:


Challenges I would like to enter:

Dream Valley - Halloween
Melonheadz - Lots of Layers
Ppinkydolls - Anything Goes or Halloween
Squigglefly - Halloween or Fall
Red Carpet Studio - Haunted Mansion
QKR Stampede - The Witch is In
Stempelsonne Challenge - Autumn/Halloween

Thank you so much for calling and the lovely comments you leave - much appreciated.  My daughter and Rowan are coming round shortly so must dash!!

Oooh Susan - I was looking at this gorgeous card then read the bit about the eight-legged beastie!!! Oh poop - even the plastic ones are 'orrible!!

I do love the card though, the colouring is fantastic and the snake is wonderful! I think I'd have put a ladybird on there though instead of the beastie - lol!!!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Beautiful! This image is beautiful and your coloring is magnificent. I am so impressed with this image colored like this. It is fabulous. I love the layout of this card...it is so great because it takes that image and makes it the attention getter that it deserves to be. The spider web across the bottom is priceless and perfect for this card! Hugs, Gail
