Happy Halloween!

We have a Halloween theme going on in The Shabby Tearoom, and I am your host this week :) I'd like you to create a card or project with a Halloween theme using the colours from the inspiration picture - purple, orange, black & neutrals with twine or raffia. Oh so fun!

Our sponsor in the Tearoom this week is More Paper Than Shoes, who are offering a$20.00 to spend instore.

For my creepy card, I've distressed these Pink Petticoat Halloween papers and used a piece of thick cardboard painted with acrylic paint and ink which I've backed with this fantastic felt Spider web! This is actually supposed to be a drinks coaster, but I saw these and knew they were meant for craft ;) I've added some paint for a creepy look and topped it with a sweet witch bingo card.

The greeting panel is just some orange card, painted corrugated card and a die cut 'Boo' decorated with a die cut faux leather star which I stitched and layered with bleached seam binding, raffia plus corrugated card star.

To top the card off, I punched an oval and used this cool Melissa Frances rub-on, edged with glass glitter,  and adhered to a black tulle bow.
