Boo!

It's another challenge at Our Creative Corner!  The fabulous Vicki is our hostess again this week with a color challenge.  I decided to create a Halloween card, I had these fabulous ghosts with gray book print on it and just had to use it for this challenge. 

I stamped the concave die cut  with Going Grey and antiqued it to match the ghost.  The letter are stickers I had to paint, since I didn't have any red letters and I wanted then to stand out.  The background is wood grain embossed with white craft rubbed along the edges with red stitching around it.  I love halloween, you get to pretend to be someone else for a night.  It's like being onstage again...

Head over to the OCC and check out what the rest of the DT team came up with, then get your craft on and join us!

Kristin, your card has ALOT of visual interest! I love all the little touches: partial text print on the ghost and some smudging to help him look semi-transparent. And your text box with the faded 'happy halloween' is wonderful! I love the idea of painting the letters red. Ingenious! and that key hole is perfect! as well as the sewing.
Fabulous card, great techniques, and FUN! Have a great weekend! and do something special-you're special!

Kristin, you are always amazing! I love the white distressing around the edges, and the fact that you painted your letters to match. I am SO into Halloween. I've dressed up every year of my life (which reminds me- I have to figure out what to be this year!). Hope you're having a super week!

Oh, Kristin, I just love what you have done with these colors. I agree with Vicki that I never would have thought to use these colors for Halloween, but this is sensational. I love all the subtle touches you combined here to give this card such great visual impact. Terrific job on the color challenge this week!

Hugs,
