Hello everyone,

Welcome to the second week of the 'Halloween' (#259) challenge at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. We hope you will play along with us; just read the rules first please. You'll find them on the SDC blog.

I have made a postcard for this week:

I started off with a gelli print. I made a few especially for Halloween and this one I particularly liked. I know it is not very Halloween in colour but I tried to make up for the lack of spookyness with my main character. His name is Friend and I stamped him on marker paper and on the card. I did this because you can't cut out all the little sticky bits on the side. When you glue the one on the markerpaper over the top, even though you have cut off all the little bits, it will look perfect. 

After colouring Friend I stamped the web on the card and heat embossed it with silver powder. I stamped the spider over the top. I also stamped him on markerpaper and coloured him. I cut him out, cutting off his legs and adhering the body to the spider in the web. Next I stamped the sentiment and added some random stamping in two corners, top left and bottom right. 
Lastly I went around the card with a black Archival Inkpad. 

I used the following stamps:

Thank you so much for stopping by ! I hope you'll make something too and enter it into the competition. You might win a $30 gift card !
