It’s a new month and a new mood board with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge. I decided to take my inspiration from the black and white on the mood board. Using Pretty Pink Posh’s Boo stamp set, coordinating die and the Spider Web Stencil, I created my black and white Boo card. After die cutting out the letters and cutting down a transparency to size, adding foam tape, opted out on making this a shaker card. I know it would have been perfect for a shaker but I’m not always a fan of them and also not very successful either. Anyway using the stencil on black cardstock, I pounced white pigment ink from Gina K Designs over it and gave it a spray of perfect pearls/water combo. Adhered everything and the card was just a little too stark white for my liking so then stamped the spider included in the stamp set makings a spidery border. I also added some clear heat embossed spiders on black and die cut just incase I didn’t have enough spiders.
This is a great day to make some cards. I had three different events yesterday so we decided to stay home to watch the final game of a disappointing baseball season for our Phillies. Here’s to hoping they can pull out the final game with a win. Eagles already lost so it will not be a happy day for Philadelphia sports fans to have two teams lose game.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Have a great day and stay safe.

Your spiders are so fun! Love the big word with the web under it.
Great take on the inspiration board. I am not huge on shaker cards, either, so this is right up my alley.
Cute card! Love the black and white!
Gayle, your card can definitely boast about having more than enough spiders! You did a great job with this. I do recommend trying shakers a few more times, they are lots of fun to both make and receive. Anti static powder run around the inside helps a lot.
LOL…I don’t even like spiders. I’m much better making the flat shakers than the popped up ones since I always seem to spring a leak. Thanks for commenting.
