Wolves may lurk in every guise!

There’s a fabulous new release of Teen Scene images ready for Halloween, Spooky Teens, from Simply B Stamps and I’ve got Big Bad Wolf Chris on my card.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Cheerful Sketches.  I’m loving all the layers, which allowed me to use a range of papers and patterns to jazz up my card without the need for embellishments.  Which was just perfect as I’m planning this for one of my male friends hence the no embellies or frills and the good, solid manly image.  As this card is for a male I’m also entering it in the current challenge at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards.

It’s the right season and this is the right image for a Halloween card and I do love to make Halloween cards.  And what better colour to go with this image than orange.  As I have both Halloween and orange I’ve got both themes for Simply Create Too’s current challenge so I’m also linking up my card over there.

Now it’s also Day8 over at SBS’s 13 Days of Halloween where the theme is embossing, either wet or dry.  I’ve used both on my card, creating a cool bit of background paper using an embossing folder and then adding some colour with ink and embossing powder.  I’ve also used embossing powder to highlight some of the lettering on another piece of paper.  I took the sentiment that comes with Big Bad Wolf Chris and printed it several times on a piece of coloured paper and added in some fangs.  With my trusty VersaMarker I then went and traced over the bits I wanted to emboss, sprinkled on some embossing powder, blitzed it with my heat gun and voilà, the perfect sentiment and background paper combination.

To join in the fun of the 13 Days of Halloween and to see the rest of the images in the awesome Spooky Teens collection head on over to the SBS blog.
