The Crafters Cafe Challenge #31 A Bit Out There...

Time for the latest weekly challenge at The Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog and this week we are sponsored by Rick St Dennis so the results might be a bit different from what you would normally expect at the Crafters Cafe! The theme is 'A bit out there' and I have gone with a Halloween theme - check out the rest of the design team for their take on it!

I had the privilege of working with the 'Warlock' image from Rick St Dennis which you can find in his Etsy shop and I have coloured mine using Promarkers finishing the image with some Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges to match the papers. I have used two papers from the My Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found Halloween' paper pad and some printable Halloween ephemera from Tsunami Rose Designs. The ribbon in the corner is actually a halloween hair bow that I took off its clip - this was a pack of four found in Pound World!

And a wee close up of the Warlock. I've backed everything with pearlescent black paper and finished the card with some black pearls. 

I will enter this card into the following challenges -
Cuttin and Stampin Challenges - Halloween

2 Creative Chicks - October Halloween
