Stampin Royalty Challenge #42

It's Wednesday and that means another challenge over at Stampin' Royalty. This week the challenge is a recipe challenge.

I am really into the Halloween spirit these days. My children are old enough to understand what Halloween means. But as we are in the last vestiges of our renovations, I haven't pulled out the Halloween decorations in our house. There's no point in decorating the construction mess. Anyway, in order to get my fix, I decided to make another Halloween card. Here's my creation.
I also entered this card into Glitterbabe's Challenge. Click Here for her challenge blog.

This card was inspired by a card made by the fabulous Patti Lee. Click here to see her original card. I really liked the circles on the paper used by Patti so I decided to use My Digital Studio, and create my own patterned paper.

How did I make this? Well first I pulled up a page from the Nite Owl DSP available for My Digital Studio. Next I used circle circus and stamped several images in old olive, perfect plum, so saffron and pumpkin pie. Then I used the bat punch and filled it with black and stamped it all over the page. Then I printed the paper out on my colour printer. Once I had the printed paper, I drew the shoe shape on top and cut it out. Patti refers to a shoe template, so if you are interested in one, follow the links to her blog. But I simply drew my own. In order to emphasize our Ribbons challenge, I used grosgrain ribbon to make the witch's sock. The spider is from the Dark and Dreary set. I stamped it on white, coloured it in with watercolor pencils, painted it with an aquapainter, and then carefully cut it out with craft scissors.
