Another Challenge with Just A Scrappin'

Hello my friends, It's Thursday so that means there is another challenge going on over at Just A Scrappin'. This week's challenge is for design team 1 and the challenge is to create a card, layout or project using a stamped image and using the colors Orange and Lime Green. Any other colors are also okay to use with these two colors so I automatically thought Halloween and this is what I came up with:
My card is a standard A2 card and the papers used are Bazzill and Colorbok. I stamped out these four creepy images from my stamp set called "Happy Halloween" from Inkadinkado and colored them in using my prisma colored pencils. I mounted them on 1 1/4" squares that I cut out using my creative memories square punch. The images were then mounted on 1 1/2" black squares. I used one of my copics to outline the images in orange to make them pop off the black. I used my distressing tool to distress my layers to give it more of a spooky vibe. I love how it turned out!

 My sentiment stamp is from Mary's Cardz TV stamp set called "More Spooky Sayings". I thought this sentiment went perfect with these creepy Halloween creatures! Here is a little peek at the inside:
The inside sentiment is from the new Cardz TV Set Oct. 31st and the tiny bats are from the Inkadinkado set.
  I hope you stop on over to Just A Scrappin and link up your creation for this challenge and see what the wonderfully talented design team members created!
  Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!


  1. Great card-and great use of the card set! Love it!

  2. Spooky,Scarey and Super Cute!TFS

  3. spooktacular! very cool halloween card, Jo! to answer your question. No, i almost never use my colorless blender for the lighter parts. when coloring, i always start at the darkest then mover on the lighter colors. and a lot of the time i only go over the lightest parts once or twice to keep them light with more contrast. i hope i am making sense here. =) hope this helps!


Your lovely comments always put a smile on my face! I love reading each and every one! Thank you for stopping by~
