Orange And Black

Good morning folks on a rather cold and very windy Monday. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to get some crafting done too. I did quite a lot, some of which is under wraps still.
We have a new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday and continuing with the October Autumn theme, we have a colour challenge for you, Orange and Black, which can be Halloween or not, the choice is yours.
I wanted to do a Halloween project but don't own any stamps which fit this so I resorted to digital images and papers.

I decided on a fun and spooky creation because I love the spiders on the backing paper - they look so cute, unlike the real thing which I'm not at all keen on! The paper is from the Polka Doodles Polly Witchydoodles Halloween download bundle and I printed this out, tore the edges to distress them and inked them with Black Soot Distress ink.
The other elements are all from the Polka Doodles Sundae Of Seasons CD and I used the black and white digital stamps, colouring with Promarkers. I cut out the pumpkins and rounded them out with a large embossing ball tool before adding to the card with layers of foam tape for a 3D effect.
I added a larger bat and text printed with a Dymo label maker to finish.

The DT have some very varied projects to inspire you so do pop over for a look as there are some really gorgeous creations there. Talking of which, your entries for the last challenge were fabulous and it was so hard to pick only 3!

Challenges for my card:
CD Sunday - Halloween
Creative Inspirations Paint - Halloween
Dream Valley Challenges - Halloween
Gingerloft - Halloween or Fall
2 Sisters - Pumpkin Patch
Card Makin' Mamas - Halloween
Fashionista Friday - Spooky Fall
Raise The Bar - Orange and Black

Hope you all have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx
