Simply Create Too #96 Halloween Colours

I'm very lucky to be a new member of Simply Create Too Design Team! Our challenge this week is #96 Halloween Colours and I just had to use one of my new Halloween Digis from Simply B Stamps (Betty is the queen of Halloween and has some fantastic digis) paired with some beautiful papers from Michele. I coloured her up in typical Halloween colours and love how she turned out! 

I used my Tim Holtz distressing tool and old paper ink pad to age the edges. I finished off my card with some bat embellishments from my secret pumpkin (find out more about this on Oct 25th) and a flower created with Heartfelt creations tattered blossoms and Spellbinders foliage and a beautiful rhinestone. 

Pop over and see the other fantastic DT makes or join the challenge

  1. Hi there - I just wanted to let you know that the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge is for ATC's only, please do try again! :)

    1. Yep 2.5 x 3.5 inches. That's the size of my witch!

    2. In the future, please photograph and post the actual ATC - it's fine to create something with it after the fact and post the card you made as well, but we like to see the actual ATC for our challenge. Thank you!

  2. Thanks for joining us at The House That Stamps Built for our Color Challenge. I hadn't heard of Simply B stamps so I visited and they are super cute. I love visiting blogs so I can find great digi's to color! Good luck on your entry. Take care.
