The Paper Shelter Challenge #528 - 3 or More Patterned Papers

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is a fun and easy one, especially if you're like me and love to use patterned papers on your cards and projects! All you need to do is use 3 or more different patterned papers. 

For my card I used the gorgeous Adorable Halloween Witch with 4 different patterned papers. I used my new Ghost Town Patterned Papers from Doodlebug which match perfectly to the colours I used to colour her up in! I did chalk the background as I like the softness of it against the bright colours of her outfit.

These new dies turned out to be much bigger than I expected, but I love it! It's a great shape and perfect for Hallowe'en treats! Just need to get some treats and shredded tissue paper now and it will be perfect!

All Things Magical and Mythical #56 Featuring Fab-BOO-lous from My Favorite Things

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. As we are steadily approaching Hallowe'en, I have another Hallowe'en card to share with you all! Apologies if you are not a Hallowe'en fan, but I am a HUGE one, so October tends to be filled with Hallowe'en creations on my blog!

I made a bit of a boo-boo on this one! I had stamped my wreath of spiders, spiderwebs and bats and then decided to ink over the top of them with my Distress Oxides, not thinking that it would dull the wreath! Really should have embossed them, but when I stamped them all out I wasn't thinking that far ahead! I did go over the spiderwebs with my Copic Fineliner, but didn't dare risk the spiders and bats as my drawing skills suck at best! But they kind of looked ghostly, so do kind of work!
