Good morning ladies and gentlemen.  Hope your day is going well? 

Don't know what your weather is like but here in the West Midlands it is raining cats and dogs. Good day to stay in and craft - hee hee

My post today is a DT sample for our new challenge over at Stamping With The Dragon Challenge which is Halloween.  Now I don't celebrate or even like Halloween so this is my very first halloween card I have ever made.

Shopping List

C5 black card
Orange pearlescent card
Backing papers - Spooky Night
Digi stamp - Jiggy's Pumpkin
Spellbinders - basic lattice die
Marianne die leaves
Dienamics swirl
Copics - G21 | G28 | G29 | YG00 | YR02 | YR04 | YR07
Pearl moon guilding wax
versamark pen
WOW white twinkle embossing powder
Clear embossing powder
black versafine ink
Clarity alphabet stamp

I matted  my backing paper from Spooky Night selection onto a black card blank, I have also distressed this around the edges..  I then used my versamark pen to draw a spiders web coming out of the top left hand corner and embossed it with the WOW white twinkle powder.  Hopefully you can just see this.

Using spellbinders lattice die I cut some dark green card and placed that onto my backing paper.  I also die cut the swirl using a dienamics die.  My wording was stamped using the clarity alphabet stamp, black versafine ink and clear embossing powder and then cut out and placed onto my card.

Jiggy's Pumpkin digi stamp was printed out and coloured using copic pens.  Cut out, shaped and placed onto my card.   The leaves were die cut using a marianne die and green card finished off with some pearl gilding wax.

I do hope you like my first halloween card.  Thanks for checking out my blog and do pop over to the challenge here.
