Scary Halloween!~Cuttlebug D/T Card~Fright Night!

Hi~ya All!

A very happy Monday to everyone, I hope your week is off to a great start. Our weather is getting to be more autumn, cooling down a lot. Yesterday we actually had rain, and Saturday I had to use the AC. Weird isn't it.

This week at the Cuttlebug Spot our theme is "Scary Halloween." My card was a real hum dinger!! The skeleton head was cut on my Cricut, using another software that I have MTC. There were so many parts to this design, that it taken over 30 minutes for it to finish cutting, it's so intricate. This design was 10x10 in size and I scaled it down to 5 inches. It was suppose to have the spider and webs cut, but after resizing was done, it was tearing because it was so small. There are some fabulous artists on the forum, and the one who designed this is awesome. I used 3 different CB folders, and the spider and bat dies are also CB. Believe it or not, I had to adhere the teeth to the skeleton head with tweezers one by one, lol.

"Fright Night" was cut from the B/L cartridge, and I doodle with a white gel pen over the spider webs and sentiment. The spider is popped with dimensionals, an the bats are in flight on black wire. I also used the MS drippy goo for the blood running from the brains, and the MS spider web corner punch at the corners. Well, is this scary enough for you? Be sure to come and check out what my D/T brother/sisters have cooked up for you, you will be freaked out! If you are really bold, you will come and play along with us on this "Scary Halloween" challenge. Have a great week all!

Hugz, xx
