Hello and Welcome to Halloween in July with Tiddly Inks!
I was so excited to hear about this blog hop, because Halloween is my favourite holiday, just ask my kids. I love to get into costume, the scarier the better. I thought I'd start my post with a little story about Halloween and my youngest daughter Stacey.
Stacey was just under two years old when we celebrated her first Halloween. I decided to make a clown costume for her, it was a harlequin clown. I was so proud how it turned out. So, halloween came, and I dressed her, white make-up and all, then decided to show her what she looked like. I have never heard a child scream that loud before!!! She was absolutely terrified, she didn't even realize that it was her, looking back at her in the mirror. She was screaming "off mommy off"! So needless to say, she didn't go out as a clown that year, she didn't want anything to do with it. I think she sobbed for atleast an hour. I felt so bad. My daughter is 28 years old now, and still terrified of clowns. Do I see therapy in the future! Halloween's after that went very smoothly, she liked the scary costumes. I can't wait till her son is old enough to understand, and I can tell him about his momma and why she hates clowns!
I wanted to make a somewhat "creepy" card using the Gossmere image. I love the Goth images sold at Tiddly Inks. So here is what I came up with.
I found a skull template on the internet, and made it into a pocket card. The spiders were made with my Cricut Doodle Charms cartridge. I added some Martha Stewart glitter to the legs, and some Stickles Red Pearls for the eyes. The designer paper is from my Halloween pack by Basic Grey. The sentiment is by Kraftin Kimmie. Now here is the pocket part of the card.
I loved the idea of having "Gossmere" come out of the mouth of the skull, like a "Queen". I attached her with black velvet ribbon. She is layered on Basic Grey card stock, which was cut out with the Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Dies. Here are a few close-ups of Gossmere and the spiders.
I had to take the pictures a few times, and then ended up taking them outside, that's why there are a few shadows, but I hope you like my halloween card, or should I say, I hope it gives you the creeps! Have fun and enjoy the rest of your Halloween blog hop. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my pocket card. I can't wait to see everyones entries. Have a great day!
