On the 10th Day of Halloween.........

..................my Ghoul love gave to me 10 Creepy Spiders.
Tilda's being crept up on by a spider, but I don't think she minds. I've used Core-dinations card, Glitz papers and some Kraft packing to make the card. The embossed background is a Sizzix one an it's been liberally smeared with Glimmer Mist, Perfect Pearls and black Stickles.
Whilst I was spraying the background I used too much ink, turned the card over and pressed it into the bottom of the box I was using to catch any over spray. And a monster was born.
The embossed card stamped a web image into the back of the box and I just had to make something with it. I know, I wonder what goes on in my mind sometimes too!
As I still haven't replaced my broken butterfly punch, I used a negative that I had saved and sponged ink through to make butterflies I could cut out. I'm going to keep an eye open for some little Halloween bits and bobs to stand in the bottom of the box.

Challenges:
Simply Betty - Creepy spiders.
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Purple and black.
Tuesday Taggers - Deep purple Halloween

The family are supposed to be going on an English Heritage Halloween treasure hunt today, but I am full of cold so they might just be going without me.

Your card is wonderful and definitely spooky, especially the spider! And I love what you made out of the back of the embossed web - very cool! So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!
