Buckwells Crafty Challenge Very First Challenge - October 2014

 Today is the day that sees the start of another challenge blog starting up in Blogland.  The challenge blog is called "Buckwells Crafty Challenge" and we are a monthly challenge.  The full rules, which are very simple, can be found on the Buckwells Crafty Challenge Blog.

The first challenge is an easy one for you of "anything goes".
 I decided to go for a Halloween inspired card.  I have used an image by Charmaine Flannary called "Big Bad" and is available from Sweet Pea Stamps as a digital stamp.  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the image with Tim Holtz's Old Paper and Black Soot distress inks.
The backing papers are from a new release at Bearly Mine Designs.  This set is called "Halloween Fantasy".

I have finished the card off with a die-cut feather which I have coloured with Tim Holtz's Aged Mahogany and Black Soot distress inks, sentiment off the computer, Martha Stewart spider's web border punch, Martha Stewart bat punch and some really really gorgeous black satin ribbon from Buckwell Craft Supplies (I do like ruffling ribbon but sometimes with satin ribbon it can be a bit "rough" but this one is soft soft and ruffles very well).

Make sure you pop along to Buckwell Craft Supplies to have a look at all the goodies that are in the shop.
It would be lovely if you could join in with the very first challenge over at Buckwells Crafty Challenge.
This is the prize for the first challenge.  It is a selection of organza and satin ribbon from Buckwell Craft Supplies.

For a little treat for the start of the new Challenge Blog from 8.00am on Friday 3 October 2014 through to midnight on Sunday 5 October 2014 there will be FREE DELIVERY on all items from Buckwells Crafty Supplies.  Hurry on over and get some new crafting goodies with no PandP to pay!!!
