colourQ 311

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

It's that time of year again when I dig out one of my favorite stamp sets.  Yep, Best Fiends got dusted off and inked up for the latest challenge at colourQ!

I love this color combo for Halloween.  Before I started card-making I never would have thought that Wisteria Wonder and Kiwi Kiss were Halloween colors but thanks to the magic of color challenges I've learned to think outside the box and realize that these colors are FABULOUS at Halloween.  And they are perfect for my little version of Herman Munster!

The sketch at Fusion is pretty cool so I used that for my layout.  I was originally going to use some patterned paper on the background but opted to use a brick wall embossing folder instead.  I think the grungy brick wall matches my little grungy guy!

The gals at colourQ have got some beautiful cards for you to see this week.  And we also welcome back Silke after a little hiatus!   Hope to see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

I don't even celebrate Halloween but I had to buy this set when it was out. Love these images! And you've made another wonderful card with Herman. The texture of the brick wall looks fabulous in black.
