One Stop Craft Challenge - 15 October 2011

The One Stop Craft Challenge this week is Halloween.  I thought I'd finished my Halloween cards but in between making a commissioned card I had a play with a new image I bought.  I follow Hazel's blog and she uses Rick St Dennis' images so I gave in at last and had a little splurge.
For my card I have used Rick St Dennis' image called Cha Cha Witch.  I certainly wouldn't want to meet her would you?  I decided to keep the colour scheme as monochromatic in black and white.  The backing papers are from Summertime Designs and I have distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad and the white card I have stamped with Onyx black Versafine and two different Tim Holtz stamps.  The image I have coloured with Promarkers, torn around the edge and then distressed with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad.  The card is finished off with some material-style flowers made out of guess what (a hint is they are used for babies and beauty!!), large black buttons, card candy, ribbon and computer generated sentiment.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
