Trick or Treat

Hello bloggers!  Today I am playing with a  "new to me" Challenge Blog....Curtain Call and also combining it with this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog. I don't think I have ever combined a challenge before. ;)

Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is Polka Dots and for Curtain Call they give an inspiration piece.

Here is this weeks inspiration piece:
And this is my card:

Coming from the Halloween Capital of the world I better know how to create a spooky scene!  I see more weird stuff in the month of October than I care to admit.  It gets pretty freaky around here!  So Halloween stuff is right up my alley.

I started with a Hero Arts spider web and a spider cut from my Silhouette. I stamped the web in Versamark and then covered it in Perfect Pearl.  Love the shimmery effect on it.  For the jar I stamped the Hero Arts Love Jar and then filled it with Simon Says Stamps new Lots of Dots set...this set makes PERFECT eyeballs!  lol I started by stamping the outer part of the eye onto masking paper and cutting them out, layering them and then covering the entire jar in Distress ink in Mowed Lawn, Then I stamped the eyeballs, each one of those eyes is layers of stamping. I love how versatile this Lots of Dots set is. When I was done I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to give it some sparkle in the green goo.

I layered it onto some Teresa Collins 6x6 Halloween paper from last years line Haunted Hallows.  I die cut the title out of more paper and then added it onto the top.
Here's a close -up of the layers of stamping and the shimmer from the Wink of Stella.

Thanks for stopping by. I have lots of cards coming soon. I have done 5 cards since WCMD.  Did you make any?

Til next time....

Your card is fantastic! Very clever, using the Lots of Dots stamp set to make the eyes in the jar... the subtle shimmering web and spider are also great. I love it!
