I recently won a challenge over at the challenge blog "Through the Craft Room Door". I was lucky to win some digital stamps but was also offered to be a Guest Designer for a week. It didn't take me long to say "yes".
The challenge this week on "Through the Craft Room Door" is as usual "anything goes" and you can enter this challenge twice.
This week the sponsor is Sami Stamps. There is a wonderful array of images on Sami Stamps to choose from.
Here in the UK we don't really go into Halloween but I don't need any excuse to have a "play" with Halloween images so I decided upon this image by Sami Stamps called "Halloween Kittie". Isn't it wonderful?
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers. I then did the background with shades of grey, blue and black chalks and finally inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Stormy Sky and Black Soot distress inks.
The backing papers are from Summertime Designs which I have printed onto canvas paper for some texture.
A friend last year sent me some die-cut pumpkin shapes so I have used a piece of a blending mat I cut into an arc and my Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge distress inks to make the lines of the pumpkin and finished off with Crushed Olive for the stalks.
I have finished the card off with some spider ribbon, Martha Stewart punched out bats and a Halloween sentiment.
Thank you so much to Deonna and the Design Team at "Through the Craft Room Door" for having me as their Guest Designer for this week.
