Boo!

So here we are in October - Let the Halloween cards begin!!

Even though Betty had a beautiful branch of spring bloom as our color inspiration photo over on Split Coast - I immediately thought Halloween when I laid the colors out on my work bench!!??!! - Perfect Plum, Summer Starfruit and Tangerine Tango.
I only had the SU color of Tangerine Tango so I used that for my card base. I embossed the bottom edge with a new Tim Holtz Halloween Texture Fade. I used Memento inks for the other colors - Tangelo for the pumpkins, Dandelion for the bubbling brew (with some added bling!) and Sweet Plum for the cauldron and spider!

The fun Halloween stamps are from the Halloween Party set by Waltzingmouse.

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Halloween Party
Paper: White, Plum Pudding - PTI, Tangerine Tango - SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, tangelo, Dandelion, Sweet Plum, Ranger Distress Scattered Straw
Accessories: Foam tape, Tiny Twinkles - Taylored Expressions, Texture Fades - Halloween Background & Borders set - Tim Holtz

Love that orang card base - makes the main panel pop. Super sponging too. This is very cute!
