This is my card for Day 207 - DIY Patterned Paper at 365 Cards. I also used the MOJO105 layout and the SCS CC235. Deets:
  • Paper: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, and Basic Black (whisper white was used for the main image); Background paper was handmade by repeatedly stamping the [spooky] sentiment in versamark and embossing with clear ep.
  • Image: All Hallow's Eve (Inkadinkado) - getting some use out of this set!, [spooky] (Hampton Art @ Mike's)
  • Ink: Versacolor: Boysenberry, Heliotrope, Black, versamark (for the spiderweb and the background) - I've been in a sponging mood so used this for the background on the image panel and to darken the bg panel edges
  • Other: Little ribbon spool (don't know about this one), circle punches for the scallops at the bottom

I also wanted to apologize to everyone that I haven't taken the time to leave comments on your blogs...I truly appreciate all the ones you leave for me, but between work, getting my card done, and needing to sleep, I haven't had time to leave comments on your creations :( Though I admit that I blurk a bit and get inspired! Thanks for continuing to inspire me and I will try to get better about letting you know how much I like all that you do! Mahalo!



What a great combination of challenges - the colors are terrific, the sketch with your DIY background and the Halloween theme! Another card, are you selling this one? I think I'll buy it from you! Love, SAM aka MOM
