AOOOOOOOOO! The Paper Shelter Challenge

     Hope your week is going well.. It’s Wednesday and that means another great challenge from The Paper Shelter.  Our theme this week is… HALLOWEEN.   Even though I am the biggest scaredy cat, I just love Halloween; love to decorate the house with candles and all things spooky.
    As always, The Paper Shelter offers a $30 voucher to anyone who wins using a TPS image.  If you choose to use an image from another company, you can still win a choice of 3 digis from the store.  Veronica and Pedro love giving away the “big prize” so we hope you play with one of the TPS images.

     For my Halloween card, I selected “A Great Harvest”  and merged him with another digi image by CC Designs called “Swiss Pixie Halloween Scene”.  Since The Paper Shelter images come in both JPEG and PNG formats, you can merge them with any other digi images that are also PNG format.

     My little “werewolf” is colored with copic markers.  I often struggle with hair that has few or no lines so what I did with this little guy is that I lightly added some strands of hair with the copic .03 black multiliner – it made it easier for me to blend his haircolor having created a few more “sections.”
     The design paper is from K&Company, an older 12×12 paper pad.  The black cardstock is from Recollections and the card base is 12×12 STARDREAM METALLIC #105 weight from Cut Cardstock – they make the best and most sturdy cardstock for a card base.  I purchase the Stardream metallic (white) and Opal Metallic (ivory) for my card bases.  You will find you can layer all your fun embellishments on this cardstock without any bending.
    I also went crazy at Joann’s this week purchasing 1/4 yard cuts of fun Tulle and Netting.  I used the crickled black (first one on left in pic below) for this card.  Such sparkle…no need to get out the Glamour Dust! I have so many gorgeous colors that you will be seeing in upcoming posts.  While I love to spray my own cheesecloth with the many great spray inks, sometimes it saves time to use the premade tulle!

   The Scary Fence punch is from Martha Stewart and the sentiment is one I found on the internet… doesn’t it match the image so perfectly?
    Well, that is all for me today… as always, thank you for your kind comments.  Won’t you hop over to The Paper Shelter blog to see what the design team has created to inspire you?  Hoping  you will join us for a “howling” good challenge…. AOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thanks for joining in at Here Come The Boys, it gave me a chance to see this fab card. Unfortunately the current challenge has a theme of "Edwin Only" images and so your card does not qualify ๐Ÿ™ Please don't let it put you off… we'd love to see your next masculine creation – and we've got some super flexible themes coming up making it easy for you to enter.
