Fright Night

      Once more it's time for a Halloween card for 2 Old Bats  where the theme is always "Halloween."  I've played there pretty faithfully since the challenges first started.  I love making Halloween cards and I figure if I can do Christmas cards all year round, why not Halloween?  I seem to be gaining new family members as my grandkids marry and have kids of their own so it's not like I have nobody to receive them. :-D

     This spooky Fright Night card was done using one of the images sent to me by a dear friend early last fall after I lost all my digital images (nearly 10,000!) due to a flash drive crash.  It was printed in gray scale and I colored it with ProMarkers and gel pens.  

     The graveyard fence was made with two die cuts, one orange and one black (Spellbinders die) which I offset before adding them at the bottom of the card.   The sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die.  I really wanted the scary jack-o-lantern head to be the focus of the card so I left it without any embellishments.  I'd classify it as a CAS card but many people think it has to have lots of 'white' space to be CAS so I'll leave it to you to decide.


     You really should come and play along at 2 Old Bats.  This month, they have a prize which is wonderful.  Of course, if you don't play, that means there'll be a better chance that I'll win it.  :-D  On the other hand, Halloween isn't all that far away since it's already August !  
     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

OMGosh, that has to be one of the scariest Halloween images ever! So incredibly cool, though! The fence is perfect with him, too. That's so awful about losing 10,000 digis! I don't have quite that many, probably, but I do store them on a flash drive. Thought that would be the safe thing to do. Yikes!

Nana Connie, we do appreciate so much for being so faithful to 2Old Bats! That jack-o-lanter sure is the focus of the card. Did you color in white around the "head"? Super cool!
