ATS Challenge #20

I had a little sneak peak at this weeks ATS challenge, being that I am October's Guest Designer and all (I just like saying it so much) so I got a head start. I loved the sketch and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I hadn't used my little CC Designs count-bearula (get it bearula - Dracula, it know its lame) yet and I wanted him in all red and black.

So here he is. I love him, he is so adorable. I know he is trying to be scary and all but... I'm not sure it is working out so well for him. He is just too cute!

There is a little glitter on his cape and the spider's eyes, even though it doesn't show up at all in this photo.

I stamped him onto Stampers Select with Palette Noir and colored him with Prismas and OMS. He is mounted onto Pure Poppy and then black (Bazzill, I think). The pattern paper is from DCWV. I used the spiderweb embossing folder from Cuttlebug for the white background layer and the base is Pure Poppy. The black buttons in the corner were leftovers from my quilt making days.

My spider is stamped so that he appears to be hanging from the trick or treat saying up in the corner. One spider landing on my head, Bwah,ha, ha. (my best Count from Sesame Street impression).

That is about it for this card I guess. I am so excited to show you all of the stuff I have been working on the last week or so.

Now it's your turn. Go check out the forum and gallery over at ATS and do a challenge or two. You could be next month's Guest Designer.

Very cool the dangling spider. We've been really excited about doing Halloween stamping and love seeing what others are doing for these creepy days! Very inspiring...
