happy halloween

Yes, I know it is the Valentine season and not Halloween, but I've just bought this stamp and could not wait until Halloween to use her. Besides which I have a box of Halloween papers that need using up, so why not?

I am entering this into the following challenges:

'Fairy folk': My Time to Craft.

'Triangles': Paperminutes - formed by the panels of her dress.

'Ribbons': Creative Belli.

'Spots & Dots': Cute Card Thursday.

'Distress, buttons & bows': Allsorts Challenge.

'New stash': ABC Challenge.

Papers & Happy Halloween Tag: My Mind's Eye ~ Spider's Web collection.  

I have distressed the edges with stickles.
This fabulous stamp is Sweet November Stamps ~ Gossamer Cornwand. Expect to see some more from me using these stamps. I coloured her with my copics and added my At You Spica pen to the web of her dress, shoes and the wings. Unfortunately the sparkle does not show up in the photo.

At the corners of her dress where the spiders are hanging I added some spider peel-offs where they had been part of the stamped image so that I could cut it out easier.

Thank you for looking.
