Last one Honest!!!!

Now I know I said I wasn't going to do anymore Halloween cards but I ordered this Tilda stamp from Crafts U Love and I had to ink it up straight away. I have really come to love these stamps because they are really easy to work with.
I have used the great sketch at Cupcake Crafts shown below.

I have used a base black card and the other card is another of my favourites - Core'dinations, from the bottom up (excuse the expression!) Whitewash, ROY.G.BIV and Black Magic all obtained from The Range.
I have sanded all the card to distress it - really lovely effect.

The flowers are from the same card and sanded and have brads from Papermania in the middles. The punches were from Woodware and Xcut.

I painted Tilda with my trusty watercolours and used foam pads to put her on the spiders web paper from Summer Driggs - Happy Halloween Kit.

The fibres are from my stash - seem to have had them forever - and I just managed to tie a bow in  it!!!!

The other challenges I am entering are :-

Saturday Challenge - Orange plus one other colour (Black in my case),

Magnolia Down Under - Distressing (plus Magnolia image),

The Pink Elephant -  Black, hardware (brads) and distressing,

Creative Belli Challenge - Rafia or twine (hope my fibres are acceptable),

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Halloween,

If the Shoe Fits - Halloween and

Just Magnolia - Monochrome (can have one other colour)

I am really pleased with this card and glad I got to use this image this year and didn't have to wait!!!! Please tell me what you think.

Hiya Mate,
So sorry I'm late with this comment - have been out of the office at a meeting most of the day - off site too so didn't even get chance at lunchtime. I love this card, and how could that image possibly be scary - she is so cute. I can understand why you had to ink her up straight away! I love the cobweb!! Fab card Ali, well done - and so many challenges - are you after my crown!!!!! LOL.
