TMR - Halloween ....

.... Hello all!  So much for the sunshine yesterday!  It was certainly warm, but it was really wet! Come back cold, crisp and sunny!  Anyway, it's time for our new challenge at The Male Room.  This time we have a theme for you, and it will come as no surprise that the theme is:#

HALLOWEEN!!!!

Here's the card I made - it's not at all what I'd planned, but it's a fun one!

Spiders, Cobwebs & Ghosts - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Spooky; Sweet Stamp Shop - Haunted House; Impression Obsession - Is the Moon out Tonight?; Stampendous - Halloween Diamonds
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow; White Embossing Powder; Vellum; EK Success - Cobweb Punch; Wink of Stella Brush - Clear

I've used several challenges to make this card and they are:

I cut four panels (all the new in-colours from Stampin' Up!) and adhered them to the card base.  Next I punched the cobweb border and adhered.  I stamped the ghost, pumpkins and skull in Versamark on vellum and heat embossed them with white powder, cut them out and added some colour to the back of the pumpkins and skull.  I stamped the fence on black car and then fussy cut it out.  I finished the front with a fun spider hanging from the border.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in black and added a big, bold sentiment.
