Anya Trick-or-Treats as the Pirate
There have been lots of Halloween challenges lately, but I was getting kind of tired of orange, green and purple, so I decided to let Anya go trick-or-treating in her stylish pink and black. I used the sketch from Shirley's Twisted Thursday - and you had to use chipboard as well. My skull and crossbones are chipboard sprayed with
Tattered Angels black gold (It is really sparkly and lovely in person). Stamp With Fun, Incy Wincy Challenge, Creative Friday and Roses on Paper challenges were all for a Halloween card (and of course I used a Greeting Farm Anya for the ROP Challenge). For Paperplay challenges you had to use your favorite embellishment. Although I have many - I have gotten hooked on making the crepe paper flowers, edged in stickles. Finally, I put the whole card together using the recipe challenge from Dutch Dare: to use 2 colors of cardstock, 2 Designer papers, 2 flowers, 2 brads, and 2 gems (the centers of the flowers are swarovski crystal -another favorite embellie!) That's a ton of challenges to fit into one card, but don't you think she deserves a treat?
