This'll scare you!!!

Or maybe it won't! This week's challenge theme at Sweet Stampin' is 'Halloween'. I made this card using the cute (and not scary) Count Draclewis from Prairie Fairy. he's coloured with copics, cut out and mounted in front of his 'coffin' which I hand cut (not having a coffin die:) it's embossed and then studded with nail heads (which I bought at a bargain price at the Ladybugs Crafts Ink closing down sale). The cobwebs are Memory Box die cuts (love this die!) I chalked the edges of the black cardstock to make it look dusty. The little spiders are doodled using a white gel pen.
 Our generous sponsor this week is Crafty Devils (how apt!!!) who are giving a £15 voucher to the lucky winner, so what are you waiting for, get stamping and join in!
Have a lovely weekend.

I have absolutely nothing Halloween related and it doesn't really mean much to me as we were not brought up with it, so I would have to make more than a coffin lol, great job you did with that looks brilliant. Cute image and love all the spiders webs.
