Halloween Fun

Time for another challenge over at The Play Date Cafe, and our inspirational picture......
...... a great choice from Sarah Anderson, I love rusty orange and chocolate brown together but it was a slight challenge trying to incorporate the turquoise and more so the hot pink.
I had set my mind on using my new stamps and I think that's where my problem began, as it is very difficult to incorporate turquoise and hot pink into Halloween LOL, but I managed albeit very subtle.
I coloured a piece of glossy card with DI Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey and stamped the pumpkin's in StazOn Timber Brown, I just love these pumpkin's they are such fun images and the detail is fantastic.  The foliage has been stamped with Timber Brown ink and I have added flowers in the turquoise and hot pink, yippeeeee, I managed it LOL.  ALL HALLOWS EVE was stamped with Timber Brown ink onto rusty orange Bazzil card.  The image has been layered onto choclolate brown and rusty orange card.
Whilst I had my new stamps to hand I thought I would have another go at creating a SPOOL.  I love making these, they are so easy and great fun.  I coloured a piece of glossy card in the same way and stamped the pumpkin's in Timber Brown ink and then simply glued the card to the SPOOL.
I have added a Halloween sentiment to the bottom of the SPOOL and I have embossed the top with a Sizzix Bat Embossing Folder and rubbed over with Timber Brown ink.
I have also added an owl to the spool which has been coloured with Distress Inks.  Co-ordinated buttons and fibres have been added to complete.  The Impression Obsession stamp, All Hallows Eve, and the Sizzix Embossing Folder are all available from THE STAMP ATTIC.  Have a great weekend everyone,  Tracy x x

It's a great response to the challenge - I don't expect you use hot pink and or turquoise together very often!

Your card is great. I think the colors go well in it because you kept them a bit pale. It really turned out beautifully.
