A PaperCutz challenge card...

Ok, so I'm not thrilled with how this turned out, but I'm sharing anyway! This is for the PaperCutz Challenge #4 to create a Halloween 'something' without using black or orange. Yipes, definitely a toughie.

Stamps: Mrs. O'Leary's in Wichita (skull), inkadinkado (sentiment)
Paper: TAC's Basic Brown & Scarlet cardstocks, misc. white cardstock
Ink: Burnt Umber L'Amore Red Palettes, Moonlight White Brilliance
Other: EK Success punch, MS drippy goo punch, White gel pen, VersaMarker, misc. lace, pop dots


I couldn't get a really good stamped image of the sentiment... I don't know if it is because of the clear stamp or maybe Brilliance doesn't work as well with them. I even 'conditioned' the stamp like I've been told to do, but whatever. It is what it is.

Can you see the 'blood' on the lace? It didn't work out as well either. This card will probably end up in that infamous pile of never-to-be-sent cards I've got going.

Tomorrow is our first Macabre Monday challenge day here at HDH, so be sure to tune in!!!

What do you think?

Barb, I love this card!!! Definitely not one to put in the never-to-be-sent pile!! The drippy goo punch and the skull are my favorite parts.
