It's the third Wednesday of October and that means it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge. The theme for this challenge is Halloween (plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells). Halloween is only a couple weeks away. We usually get lots of trick or treaters and it's always fun to see the little ones dressed up.
This Halloween card was a lot of fun to create as I decided to use a Western theme for my card. The following Die-Versions dies were used to create this card:
Die-Versions Western Horse (temporarily out of stock)
Die-Versions Black Cat Wishes (retired - image from my blog)
To create the background, I used various Pan Pastels to replicate what I image a setting sun in the desert would look like. In real life, the lower portion of the background is browns (like dirt) and the rest is reds and oranges. Unfortunately, the photo didn't capture a lot of the details and the die cuts covered up much of the horizon line. But I think you get the idea :-). My photo did manage to capture a skeleton "ghost" in the sky. (It's really the shadow of the skeleton on the horse as he is on the saddle side-ways.)
The sentiment is from the Black Cat Wishes die (no longer available). I fussy cut out the part of the sentiment that I wanted and then added Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers to it for sparkle. The card base is heavy glitter paper cardstock that I had I had in my stash.
This is a very dimensional card and I'm going to enclose it with my son's Halloween goodie box. (You're never too old to receive Halloween treats :-). )
You'll have until October 30th to upload your Halloween project to the Scrapy Land Challenge. It's always really helpful if you let us know which dies you used in your projects. The winner, which is chosen by the Design Team, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.
