      Welcome to the October Card Challenge!
      This month, the theme is “Boo!”. Make a card, tag or ATC using a Halloween theme. How easy is that? You don’t need actual Halloween papers and embellies. Take a look at your inks and sprays; you definitely have some wonderful Fall colors in your stash. The same with flowers and trims; we all seem to have some black lace and tons of flowers tucked away. No? Why not alter you embellishments with your inks?
      While the use of your Swirly stuff is encouraged (what a great way to use your leftovers!), it’s not a requirement; you may use whatever you have laying around. We only ask that you do not use materials from another kit club. And yes, you may enter as many times as you wish.
      The challenge will run from the 1st through the last day of the month.
      The winner each month with be chosen at random…..so even if you’re not an expert card maker you can still win. This month’s winner will receive the rest of the Tim Holtz Ephemera package that I used to make my examples (believe me, there’s tons of pieces left!).

        I’ve made a few Artist Trading Cards to illustrate ways you can follow this month’s theme. This year, I made my own background paper, stamping with a print stamp and coloring with distress ink and backing with black cardstock.
        I used some Tim Holtz ephemera as embellishments (the rest of the package will make up this month’s RAK) and finished off with bits of bling.

        I can’t wait to see all of the gorgeous (and spooky!) projects that you make this month!!!!

                          Kathi, that’s what happened to me. Maybe it’s the # of pixels? Oh well, easier to see the details, right?

                          And I do love those details; the layers and colors and that gorgeous die. (*sigh* – which die is this moooost have?)

                                Isn’t she awesome? She (and the rest of my embellies) are from Tim Holtz’s new Halloween pack. She was the only witch, but there are about 100 pieces left in the package; that’s what I’m giving away as my RAK this month. (See the first post…)

                                I do so hope that you’ll play along; the more you enter, the better your chance of winning the random draw!
