Just Add Ink Challenge # 286

Hello Friday, boy you come round quick!!! Lucky I'm all ready for a new challenge at Just Add Ink! We have a really cool challenge theme for you this week:

                                 JUST ADD ANYTHING WITH A 'W'

How simple is that!! And there are SO many different things you can do with your card around the letter 'W'. Wings, water colour, werewolves.....anything you can think of, its totally up to you!!

With it coming close to Halloween the very first thing that came to my mind was 'webs', as in Spiderwebs. I'm not a huge spider fan and hate getting caught up in webs while I'm gardening but there is something rather magical about them, especially their patterns. My card isn't so magical, its more 'spooky' than anything else:

At least these webs won't get stuck on my face!!! To create this I stamped the web on white CS 6x and then fussy cut. After working out the pattern I popped them all up on foam tape. On another piece of white CS I stamped 'Beware' in red pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder straight away for a bit of shine. I also stamped the tiny spiders and fussy cut them and put them on small pieces of foam tape as well.

All of the stamps used are from Hampton Arts.

I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.

And will also link to the AAA Card Challenge # 51 where their theme is 'Halloween - All Styles'.

You have until next Wednesday 4th November to link your projects to the Just Add Ink  challenge. The rest of the Design Team have some fantastic projects on the blog to help you with any ideas on the 'W' theme. Can't wait to see your creations in the Gallery!!

Take care
