A Homespun Affair October Challenge


MY NEW BLOG LOOK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Entered:
my crafting channel-challenge-1-ghoul-times
I look forward to Jessica's "A Homespun Affair Magazine" issue each month and this one was BOO-tiful!  The Halloween theme running throughout the fabulous magazine inspired me to create this card. Since I hate spiders, (I know why did I make a spider card?) I decided to pop open my NEW Artiste cartridge that I received today from my blogger friend Janet and off I went into Orange,Purple and Black Challenge Land.
 Here's the color challenge code:
I used the Spider web cut from Vellum and Eek! on pg. 76 . The spider, pg.77,is cut 4 times for thickness @ about 2". I simply had to add the Action Wobble under his belly but i was unable to catch him wobbling with my camera!! Spiders are known to move quickly! I used the MS scissors to cut the edges of the circles for some dimension. The twine is from Reasonable Ribbon in orange, black and purple. The little ghost in the upper left corner is just a foam sticker .Yes, you know the drill, Stickles was used on the web for added sparkle!


Wobbly spider
