Halloween Birthday Card for another Crafter


Hi,

One of the items I bought at Artisan was this Tim Holtz folder, which has had numerous Distress Inks, Black Paint Dabber, and another new item I bought, Viva Inka-Gold rubbed in various places and a few stickles.

I don't normally put cards on my blog as am a hopeless card maker but I liked the effect of this folder. This is for a lady crafter who shares the same birthdate as me........Halloween, just hope she likes it.

Today have been catching up with some Art Class Homework and it is literally waiting for paint to dry before I can do some more, I think I overdid the water on the watercolours but I loved the drips and the splodges......its supposed to look like Monet.........lets hope my teacher forgets her glasses.........lol
I am entering this card in the Simon Says Challenge - Halloween

Thank you for looking at my Blog and all your continued support, but please don't let this card put you off from coming back and seeing me again........take care and have a great week, Annette x

There is nothing wrong with this and i don't for a minute believe you are a "hopeless" card maker. Looks like we've both been buying/using the same things! Thank you for your kind comments.
