Bloggers Challenge Week 12-Inspiration Challenge

And just in the nick of time, I must add!!!! Whew, it has been a hectic hectic week. What inspires me you might ask? Well actually, this week it is a "Who"!!!! My source of inspiration for this card is one of my Favourite Favourite Stampers............. Leigh O'Brien. Visit her Blog and you will surely see why!!!! Leigh has made the sweetest cards with the Big Deal Alphabet. Here is one of my Favourite samples:


Isn't this the sweetest Baby Card!!!! You can see more of her great creations in her Splitcoast Stampers Art Gallery

Now for the goods on My Card. The Halloween images that accent the Spooky Sentiment come from the Haunting Halloween set that just happens to be one of the sets featured Stampin' Up's Fall Frenzy Promotion

. I Stamped the Alphabet Letters in More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust, then outlined them with a black Stampin' Write Marker. Using the Aquapainters and Neutral Gray Watercolour Crayons, I created shadows to imitate a dimensional effect. I then Stamped the Spider and Kitty Witch inside the letters and painted them with the WC as well. The Little Bat is a Martha Stewart Halloween Punch and the DP comes from SU's! Creepy Crawly Collection. I sponged some going gray around the edges of the White Cardstock and used my Colour Spritzer Tool to add some Black Speckling. Little Dashes and Dabs of midnight Stickles added the finishing touch!!!!

  24. I found this card on scs when searching for some ideas for Haunting Halloween - I just LOVE it!! I case'd it for my hostess club this month, and tonight I finally posted it (and my ode to Vicki!) :-) Take a look if you have a minute - I don't love mine as much as yours, but I do love it nonetheless! :-) Thanks for the inspiration!!!
