We're Spooky at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge!


Good morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good week so far.

This week our theme is
Spooky

Well, as you probably know I am not really too keen on spooky things. Therefore I have gone for a cute spook! I was lucky to win this fab image from Little Miss Muffet last year so it was good to have the chance to use it.
This is a shadow box style card. I have drawn spiders webs on the acetate with a white gel pen and hand cut a bat which I attached with a strip of acetate to try to make it look like it is flying. 
Sorry the photos are not too good, it was hard to get a good picture because of the reflection and you don't really want to see the photographer do you!


Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Little Miss Muffet Monster Kip coloured with Promarkers
Paper- Doodlebug Designs
White Gel Pen
Acetate


If you take a look at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge you will see the wonderful spooky creations made by this week's Design Team

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my blog, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
I'll be back soon with my Ready Teddy Go DT card and a fabulous blog hop.

Christmas Shadow Box - Dies to Die for DT card

Hello again Everyone.
 I hope you are having a good weekend.

I'm pleased to be back today to show you what I have made using some wonderful goodies from
Dies to Die For

I have had great fun making a Shadow Box card with the amazing La La Lands Shadow Box Kit.
I was so impressed by this kit. You get everything you need, including the frames, holly leaves and the background trees with layers. It's made from high quality paperboard and was very easy to assemble.
It's a natural light wood colour which I really like but it would be easy to paint up if you wanted to.
I have placed sweet Marci with Christmas Ornament inside the box, the sentiment I used came with the stamp and fit perfectly onto the oval provided with the kit.
