Arachnophobia

     I can't believe I made this card for the new challenge at QKR Stampede.  You have to understand that I hate spiders, I REALLY hate spiders!   But these two seemed so cute and friendly somehow (Digi 12301 "Spider" and Digi 12302 "Spider") that I decided to use them to fight my arachnophobia.  :-D  Besides, they were perfect for our theme of "Fall Colors."


     I colored the spiders with my new polychromos pencils but I did the shadows around them with my ProMarkers.  I used a Spellbinders' die to cut out the image, then trimmed one side of it.  I decided to add the gate and fence which gave it a Halloween feel.  One of my grandsons will love this one, I'm sure.

     Challenges:

     Come play with us this week, won't you?   Just use any of the fall colors on your card.  You don't have to use QKR Stampede images but if you do, your card will be entered into a separate drawing and that really increases your chance of winning more QKR images.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

SORRY.

  5. Sometimes I have nightmares about spiders - and they never really did anything to me, but they hurt when they bite! LOL My nightmares are the "stuff" that horror movies are made from. LOL Your little spider is not so bad, and I love his shoes! Maybe booted spiders who smile wouldn't scare me as much - still - a smiling spider would still bite if it was hungry enough, right?

    Cute card, Connie!
    hugs,
