Spooky Brads

Here's a Halloween card that I made for the Spicy Supply Challenge (which is to use brads) over at Gingersnap Creations.  That adorable little owl is the Owl Silhouette stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms.  She's stamped on some Ambrosia paper by Basic Grey.  The background was made by first embossing the Trees Backgrounder with black embossing powder from Ranger, then sponging in purple, orange, and yellow Distress Inks to make an eerie sky.  I used two shaped brads to adhere the "Spooky" paper and give it dimension - a skull and a ghost - not your ordinary brads! (I got them at Michaels).  If you'd like to participate in the Brads challenge, post your project on your blog/gallery/flickr page and link to THIS post at Gingersnap Creations.  PLUS, your name will be entered to win blog candy from Cornish Heritage Farms (A Royal Birthday stamp set from The Rummage Bin). 

Oh, and speaking of blog candy, there's more...... Enter the Orange/Green/Brown color challenge at Gingersnap Creations and you could win Cornish Heritage Farms' stamps The Pines, Nesting Maple Leaves, AND Nesting Oak Leaves sets.  Cool, heh?  It's all good :)

Happy Hump-day, everyone!

I just discovered Gingersnap Creations and saw your Halloween card there. I was so impressed I had to chase it down to its original location in order to enlarge it. Your background with the distress inks and the tree silhouettes is absolutely gorgeous. Wow!
