Cuttlebug Spot - Totally Frightful!

This week's Cuttlebug Spot Challenge is:

'Totally Frightful!'

We want to see your scary Hallowe'en projects.
Eeeeeek!!!

I don't have much Hallowe'en stash, and most of what I do have is rather cute...so these pumkins (from the 'Spooky' set by Penny Black) are the best that I could do. I created the orange background by randomly stamping a spider's web (from the same PB set) in Versafine, then embossing with clear powder. I embossed a piece of black card with my Cuttlebug 'Skeleton Scroll' folder, then highlighted the raised detail with a white chalk inkpad. I distressed all of the edges with inks and my distressing tool, and added a piece of ribbon from Poppicrafts.


For more 'frightful' inspiration, please check out the scary creations by my lovely Cuttlebug Spot DT buddies...if you dare!

Great card! I've never seen that embossing folder before. We didn't have a lot of Halloween stuff in our stores this year. Hope you have a great week!
