My first Halloween card and I actually really enjoyed it!! This week's challenge (week #30) at The Shabby Tea Room is 'Vintage Halloween', our host this week is Lisa and she provided us with a wonderful inspiration photo. The challenge is to use the photo and/or color scheme to make a vintage style Halloween card. Here's the photo.
This week's sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs, a super digital stamp company. They provided the Shabby Girls with some spooky Halloween Sentiments for our creations this week! So much fun! : ) There's a prize of some great digi stamps this week too!
The orange patterned paper I used is from the Mariposa Stack and the fabby black and white vintage print is from Fabrications Classic Paper Pack by Quirky Twerp at the Digichick. I did some spooky distressing on the edges with some Pumpkin and Coal Creative Inspirations Paint.
The creeeepy sentiment is from Sassy Studio Designs, distressed again with Creative Inspirations Paint. Wait! there's more..... inside!
I used some more of Sassy Studio's Halloween sentiments, a creepy verse from Shakespeare and vintage badge. I went a bit mad with the distressing and fake blood using Creative Inspirations Paint.
I had this vintage earring that came in a lot of old earrings, I never thought I'd use it but it was just perfectly creepy enough for a Halloween card, the tree has crows flying around it! I painted the ribbon with the Pumpkin paint to tie everything together and it wouldn't be Halloween without a bat!! : )
Wait 'til you see what fabulously spooky and vintage creations the Shabby Girls have come up with, just brilliant!! : )
