Dracula Party

As we’re coming up to Halloween our lovely leader, Judith, has chosen the theme of Celebrate Halloween for this week’s challenge at Fab’n Funky.

Our fabulous sponsor is Lemon Shortbread with a prize of 3 images for the lucky winner.

Lemon Shortbread gave the Design Team images to play with and I used Dracula Party, available here.

dracula-partyI thought this would be a good choice for my oldest grandson, who will be 13 on Halloween.  I cut an oval from the base card and placed a greyish blue paper behind it.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and fussy cut around it. The “castle wall” is bright blue paper, distressed with brown and green inks, and the bricks are marked out with a grey Promarker.  The buildings are from clip art – fussy cut and distressed with grey ink – and the moon is cut with a circle die.  The ivy is die cut with a Signature Die from Joanna Sheen and distressed with green and brown DI.  Distressing certainly took over this time as the  edges of the moon are distressed with a brighter yellow ink.  The ribbon is from my stash, the bats are confetti and the sentiment is computer generated using Chiller font.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges –
