Timeless Tuesday #140


It's Timeless Tuesday once again, and this week Silke is challenging us to create for Halloween! You can create a card or make a special project, whatever your stampy heart desires! Stop by the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details and maybe you'll be the next lucky winner of the weekly prize!

For my card, I'm using the Witching You a Happy Halloween stamp set, and some very definite Halloween colors. My black cat was stamped and cut out with a Nestabilities Classic Square die and embossed with clear embossing powder, and my zig-zag border was cut with the Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities. The background was embossed with a spiderweb embossing folder and sanded for a distressed look. I embellished with some black Kaisercraft rhinestones, gingham ribbon and a button/twine/sentiment tag combo.

Stop and check out the Halloween inspiration from the Timeless Tuesday team, including our new team member, Mona Pendleton!

Rosemary Dennis, October Guest Designer

Thanks for stopping by!
