Time To Get Spooky!

Hello there and hope you had a better weekend than mine, well some of it was good (lunch out with friends on Saturday) but yesterday was not as I spent most of the day doing laundry and trawling the internet for information on ovens and hobs as the main oven part of my cooker has decided to stop working and as it's around 20 years old will be difficult and expensive to fix so I'm having to decide what I want which is not as easy as it might sound!
And now to the reason for the post which is to tell you about the new challenge today over at Make My Monday which has the theme of Halloween as the spooky day is fast approaching.
Here's my inspiration which unusually for me has no stamping!

I don't have much in the way of Halloween stamps and found the lovely vintage collage pic on the internet. I simply re-sized it and then inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink.
I covered my card blank with some Polka Doodles Halloween paper having first inked the edges of the card and the paper with the black Distress ink. I printed out some mushrooms from the Polka Doodles Bonbon Belles CD in different sizes and cut these out then inked the edges a little.
I then die cut the Tim Holtz bird cage and bird from black card and assembled my collage card as you see, adding some elements with foam tape for dimension.

Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx

My weekend was spent trawling the net for a new computer as the hard drive and motherboard died on mine, so I feel your pain, Fliss.

Your card is beautiful, a really lovely gentle take on Halloween.

As all you lovely blogging friends left such kind massages last week saying you were fine with copy and pastes while I am not up to a lot of typing, I am popping in to say hello and take a peek at your lovely work.

You may not have a stash of Halloween stamps but it didn't stop you as this card has such atmosphere and wonderful use of image and stamps.
