it's a Monstah bash!

Hi friends.  Welcome back to another bellariffic friday challenge.  This weeks challenge was HALLOWEEN.

For my card today I'm using Monstah Bash a Christy Croll image in rubber by Stamping Bella.

I stamped the image on bella's bestest paper then coloured it using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.  After cutting out the image using a spellbinder oval I left the die in place and sponged some aleo vera around the top and distress antique linen along the bottom, then layered this onto a piece of bazzill orange cut using a spellbinder oval scallop die.

Designer paper is Basic Grey - Eerie - this seems my go to halloween paper, I don't have much in this theme.  I used a Verve die called Pennent Trim for the green strip and found some pre printed ribbon that said Happy Halloween ( I think this was a Michael's purchase a few years ago).

Finished it off with some stitching, and glossy accents on the balloon and the orange bumps on the green monstah.

For more 'spooky' creations be sure to stop over at bloggabella and leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Next week our challenge theme is a sketch. If you get a chance to play along, you just have to email Emily your card by thursday night. Here is your sketch to follow.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

This is spooktacular! Love the soft sponging - mine NEVER looks like that which is probably why I don't do it much! And I love the little flag banners across the bottom!

Yes, I have that ribbon too and now that I look at this I think how great it fits this card. Love the combo - pennants, spider's webs and cute scary monsters! I need this stamp!
