ATSM #313 - Holiday

It's time for another Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge.  This time it's all about Holidays.  Such fun!  Especially as we have a number of holidays within the next few months.

For my card I turned to Hallowe'en for inspiration.  My family has always embraced that spooky holiday and I love making cards for it, from the simply cute to the downright scary.  I found several retired stamp sets which, with a little additional help from me, created a suitably ghastly scene.

On a base of Basic Black, I added a piece of embossed cardstock which I had sponged with a variety of greys, greens and some black.   The murky tones really set the stage, don't they?  I used the large jar from the Jar of Love set for the rather ghastly solution with the eyeballs floating in it.  Those wonderfully gruesome eyeballs are from the retired Jar of Haunts set.  I used the mug from a retired set and stamped it with a skull and crossbones from the retired Toil & Trouble set.  The sentiment is from the retired Merry Cafe' set  and the spider's web at top right is from this year's Cauldron Framelits dies.  I had fun with the colours and creating that line of pouring liquid.

Check out the awesome creations by the rest of the Design Team and link up your card HERE.

I've also entered this into the following challenges:
