I am currently doing a postcard exchange with a lovely group of ladies which is running for 14 months. We started in June and it's proving to be a lot of fun. Some months we get to choose what we do and some months the recipient has expressed a preference. Either way, it keeps you on your toes and it's lovely to see everyone's ideas and work.
For October the preference was bats so a Halloween theme was the obvious choice. I used distress inks for the background and stamped some patterns into it with water to give a faux bleach effect. I stamped a crackly pattern over this before adding my main images.
The monastery, bats and spider are by IndigoBlu and the foliage is a stampotique stamp. The sentiment is heat embossed in vanilla white and then mounted onto purple card which I had embossed. I outlined the edge in gold and fixed it with 3D silicone glue.
I used glossy accents on my spider to make him stand out.
I am really pleased with the way this card came together ... hope you like it too!
Spookily yours ... x
