House Mouse Challenge 8 - Halloween

This is my entry for the House Mouse Monday Challenge No.8 which is to make a card for Halloween...
I'm very pleased with the way the card turned out. I used Derwent's Coloursoft pencils and Sansodor.And the close up of the spider as he looks just looks like a blob on the card photo. The papers used are by Creative Imaginations except the stripy one, that was made by me on the computer. The sentiment is from House Mouse, stamped on pearlescent orange card and heat embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle patina gold EP, then cut round. The main stamp is called Frightingly Adorable, which was mounted onto black card and sponged with Brilliance orange inkpad. Then last but not least two black jewelled brads and a spider button from Dress It UP. The sketch I used unfortunatley I can't remember where I got it from, if you do, let me know and I'll add a link on this page (give credit where it's due). Thank you for looking.

Take care & keep smiling

Great colouring, I have yet to start using my Prisma's - they scare me a little!

Love the card and the spider, I nearly added a spider to mine but the ones I have are a bit too big.
