This week the theme at Cardz 4 Guyz, chosen by Caz, is "I put a spell on you", thinking, of course, about Halloween which will soon be with us.
Now I'm not a big fan of Halloween and tend not to have much suitable stuff for it, so when I won some printed image sheets at Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge I chose all Halloween images, so I wouldn't be quite as stuck for things to make this year. This one, with the witch, pumpkin and goblins dancing in a circle, watched over by an owl, looked perfect for the challenge, and suitably masculine.
I wanted to add some bats, but with neither stamp nor die I thought I was going to have to hand draw them - until I saw a handy tip on the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page showing how to convert punched butterfly shapes into bats. I used my old Cuttlebug die to cut some black butterflies and chopped them down to create BATterflies! The eyes are added with a white gel pen.
All the papers are snippets from my stash. I've added black and cream patterned washi tape and buttons, and edged everything with some black peel offs that remind me of bones.
With Halloween approaching fast, there are lots of challenges around to share this card with!
