Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 12 October 2015

It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "Halloween/something spooky".
This week the whole Design Team are using the same Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Hallo' Owlie".  I always find these weeks amazing when we all use the same image but our creations are so very different.

I coloured the image in with my Promarkers and then fussy cut around the edge.

My card was inspired by some I had seen by Annie when she had used a clock template kindly given free on her blog by Annette (just hope she likes what her clock has turned into!!).

I have printed the clock off to the largest it would go on A4 and cut out by hand.  I then inked over it with my Tim Holtz Spcied Marmalade, Brushed Corduroy and Rusty Hinge distress inks.  I then used my Versafine Smoke Gray ink and a Visible Image crackle stamp and stamped all over the clock.  Next out came by Clearly Besotted Stamps called "Fright Night" and I used the black cat, bats and spiders to decorate around the clock.  I used Stickles glitter glue over the clock numbers for some sparkle and shine.

 Recently Tracy Wray gave some freebie Halloween papers away on the Art by Miran Facebook Group so I cut out a piece for the centre of the clock and added a piece of black lace on top.

This clock card has then been finished off with a sentiment off the computer, Martha Stewart punched web border, bat ribbon and some Martha Stewart punched bats.
