Happy Halloween (Create A Smile)

Today I made another card for the Create A Smile November Guest Designer Call. And I created my first ever Halloween card which was really fun! And as you can see, Mr. Octopus dressed up as spider for Halloween :)
To start off, I found a free SVG file for the spider web at the new SVG store and cut it out of stencil material to use with my Distress inks. I used Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves as well as my blending tool to create a "spooky" background. I sprayed some water on top of it after the blending was done which created a really nice effect. 



For the "spider", I stamped the octopus from the stamp set "Underwater Love" by Create A Smile with Memento Tuxedo Black ink as well as the little pumpkin treat bags and the witch hat from the "Holiday Party Animal" set by Lawn Fawn. I thought it would be funny to give him a ton of treat bags since he as so many arms/legs.
I colored my images with Spectrum Noir markers and colored the octopus with IG6, IG8, and IG10. For the treat bags I use OR1, OR2, OR3, and CR11 on the inside. Because I colored over the little tooth of the pumpkin I used a white gel pen to color it white again. To give them a bit of sparkle I've put some Wink of Stella on top of them. For the witch hat I used IG6 and IG8 as well as BP4 and BP7. To make to octopus more spidery, I used my Memento Dual-Tip marker to draw some fur on his head and arms. Using liquid glue, I adhered the treat bags to all arms/legs of the octopus/spider as well as the little hat.


I used the sentiment "Happy Halloween" from another Lawn Fawn stamp set called "Booyah" and embossed it with white embossing powder by WOW on a piece of black cardstock. 
To finish off the card, I adhered the spider web panel to a piece of dark gray cardstock which was a bit bigger than the front panel. I also adhered to sentiment strip along with my ATG gun and adhered everything to a cardbase. Lastly, I used 3D foam squares to attach the octopus/spider on top of the spider web.
