Color Throwdown 164 and Pals Paper Arts 116

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Well, apparently I had another Halloween card in me.  The color challenge at Color Throwdown told me so!

Then I saw the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts was perfect to show off my favorite skull!

I used up some Halloween designer paper from a couple of years ago called Cast-A-Spell.  I love that paper and I don't have very much left, so I use it sparingly to try and make it last!  And of course, that gorgeous skull (saying that seems a little weird!) is from the stamp set From the Crypt.  I heat embossed the image in black because it always shows up best that way.  It is layered on some Rich Razzleberry and an Old Olive scallop square.

Tonight I'm off to volunteer at an art exhibition that the Friends of Borderland is hosting at the mansion at Borderland State Park.  It's a great event that we put on every year.  So if you live in southeastern Massachusetts and looking for something to do tonight, come on by.  We'd love to see you!
