Another fortnight has flown by and here we are again with our 4th Challenge at Let's Ink It Up I can't believe how quickly this is going. Thank you to everyone who played along with their favourite stamps. Another difficult decision for our top three and we also had lots of fantastic entries for our new DT - thank you everyone.

So what do we want you to do this week?

HALLOWEEN COLOURS .... so it doesn't have to be a Halloween card - STAMPS ONLY REMEMBER!!

Here is my card.........................



...........and the closeup...........


Now I must say that I have taken some inspiration from a fellow crafter with the colouring. She is called Phree and her blog is Ink Stain Suirvivor some of you may know her as she does WOYWDW. When I purchased the Spookylicious set from Elusive Images I got a few inspiration leaflets too and one of Phree's cards was there. I have nowhere near matched her example but I thought the effect with the green surrounding the house was really spooky. The spider paper was torn from a book and distressed to within an inch of its life!!!! Glimmer mist and Distress inks and scrunching up and tearing were involved and I loved it!!

Please visit my team mates and get some more inspiration their links are on my sidebar. I would also like to wish a warm welcome to our new team mates - Benedicte, Joanna and Shirley.
