Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 20 October 2017

  Here is my weekly 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/FRIGHT NIGHT".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "anything goes".

Here is my inspiration post with this image.
 For my 8"x8"card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Misty Reflections" and I have coloured her in with my Promarkers and I have used my Pan Pastels for the background.  For a change I have stamped the "Happy Halloween" stamp direct onto the image rather than separately on the card.

I decided to make my own backing papers by using plain orange and purple card stamped with my Clearly Besotted Halloween stamps.

I have finished the card off with a piece of card stamped with a crackle background to look like a spider's web, spider ribbon and various die-cuts (splats, witch, bats and the dreaded spiders).

Promarkers used:

Face/body - Blush, Sunkissed Pink and Coral
Necklace - Pumpkin
Hair - Saffron, Vanilla and Cocoa
Hat/gloves - Amethyst, Purple and Pumpkin
Dress - Burnt Orange, Pumpkin and Spice
Cats - Ice Grey 1 and 2.
Moon - Tulip Yellow and Sunflower.

 I am entering this card into the following challenges: 

Ooh La La Creations - Die-cuts
Scrapbook Stamp Society - Anything goes with the option of Autumn
A Bit More Time to Craft - Anything goes
A Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything goes

Just to give you a "heads up" that this months’ challenge is a VERY special challenge.

It would be lovely to see you taking part in our challenge in the October 3rd anniversary celebrations.
