Halloween Bonanza

I guess this is the finale card of the Halloween season. I have had so much fun playing with all the Halloween images. This week several of my regular challenges have headed along the Halloween route so I had a blast creating this card. The theme at Bloggers Challenge this week is Halloween. Simon Says Stamp and Show something Spookay. At Created Byhand we are to create art using the theme ,  “Spooky Spiders/monochromatic with a touch of black”.
My card is a zig-zag accordian fold card from the Aug-Sep 2010 Technique Junkies on-line bonus. Although you cannot see the base card in this scan, underneath all that black is an orange base. The black is core'dinations black with orange back. The two shorter folds have words embossed from the Halloween words texture fade folder (Tim Holtz). The taller panel is embossed with the Halloween minis texture fade. These panels were sanded so the orange back would show through. All of the stamps are Halloween stamps from Tim Holtz. The spider is a plastic one to which I applied red dots with a Viva Pearl Pen. Definitely spookay, spidery, and totally Halloween.
Have a fun and safe weekend!

Love it! You should also submit it to Oh, Alice! this week, the challenge is Wonderland Halloween. Most are not actually using Alice so I think this one qualifies! Great card! ;-)
