Trick or Treat

Time for another challenge over at

Challenge 49

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, just remember, you must use and IKEsART image to be eligible for the prize.  Why not pop on over to the store too :), Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

 For my creation this fortnight I have used the super fun Halloween image Trick or Treat.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut, nice and simple lol. I used the Spellbinder Fancy Lattice and black card, this was then mounted onto some orange card cut using Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals and the excess black lattice trimmed away.  Finally this was then mounted onto a black base also cut with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals.
It is a shame not to utilise the bits you have lying on your dest so I picked up the trimmed off lattice pieces and placed them on my orange card blank then sprayed with black and metallic spray.  Cool effect when I removed the bits, they made a great stencil :)
Finally, I used a great freaky cat die I have from the Tim Holtz - Mini Cat & Raven Set and covered him in black embossing powder, you can't see him properly in the pic above but here is a over exposed photo to show him to you.  He really makes me think he is freaking out seeing a lady clad in a few pumpkin bits hahahaha.
 Finally I added a pumpkin brad and the sentiment which comes with the digi.
For the inside of the card I used the same sprays I used for the card base front, cut a sentiment area using orange card and Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals and I just could not resist using the cut off lattice bits, they seemed to be the perfect finishing touch, hope you agree :) :)
