My Blue Summer House

My Blue Summer House

Wednesday, 13 October 2010


To create this card I used Stamps: Penny Black Ghostly Night, The Horror Team, Trick or Treat.  Card stock: White hammered, purple.  Papers: DP Doodlebug Designs Inc Fall assortment.  Brown.  Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  Memento Tuxedo Black.  Colouring: Copic markers.  Punches: Martha Stewart Spiders Web.  Embellishments: Papermania Shimmer Dots. 

Hints and Tips
To create this card I used the Horror Team stamp but it had three animals on it and I only wanted two.  So I stamped it out and cut out all the animals.  I used the mouse and hedgehog on this card and I will be able to use the cat on another creation.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: 2 or More Penny Black Images.
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: Challenge #104 Distressing.
Sketch Saturday: Week #124.
Penny Black At Allsorts: Colours of Autumn.
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Challenge 112 Scary Creatures.
