Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #244 Halloween

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #244 Halloween
Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Kim is hosting today's challenge # 244
and the theme is 'Halloween'.

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it follows the Halloween theme.

I used a wooden plague my late husband had made many years ago and painted it black.

The scene was created by cutting out a square piece of cardstock from the Recollections 'blackbird' collection (titled 'glowing orange'). I then adhered the spooky tree (Memory Box 'Grand Willow Tree'), the two paper bats (handmade) , the 2 black zigzaggy border trims ('Spooky Fence' by Cottage Cutz), then to finish it off the round 'moon'   created by cutting out the Spider Fang circle and the 31 from a page of Halloween images I found in my stash. I added half pearls just because.

Happy Halloween everyone!

  3. Hi Glenda, it's always good to reuse things if you can and this is a brilliant way to use the plaque. Happy creative week, Angela xXx

  4. Glenda that is a gorgeous plaque so you can re-use it each Halloween. You are so creative!!!

  5. A gorgeous piece of decor Glenda! Love the orange background and the fabulous scene created with the silhouettes! Love this! hugs xx

  6. Beautiful creation! All the silhouettes look fantastic - and I'm assuming "handmade" bats means you cut those yourself? They look awesome. And I like the added pearls "just because" - made me giggle since I think we all do that.

  7. Fabulous project.. Thanks for joining us at Gem of a Challenge 😊 Good Luck 🤞
