With Halloween fast approaching, Penny Black Saturday Challenge would like you to make a spooky card this week.  I had to improvise, as I don’t own any Halloween stamps.  I adapted the very cute ‘Easter March’ stamp by adding a stamped and cut out pumpkin image (thank you Fran!), which I placed  over the Easter egg and chick.  Surprisingly, it has worked quite well!  I coloured the altered image in seasonal colours with my Promarkers.  I cut out the image in a circle shape, to represent a large full moon, and shaded the outside edge with purple chalk to give it some depth.  I cut out a little bat and added it to the moon shape to give it a more eerie feel.  I was lucky enough to find a piece of DP with flowers that looked very much like pumpkin flowers.  This is from the Dovecraft Fairies DP set.  The colours match the Bazzill card that I used to layer and matt my image perfectly.  The sentiment is from a House Mouse acrylic stamp set, and this was stamped, matted, and attached to the card.  I drew the tiny cobwebs at the corner, again to make it a little more spooky. Finally, I attached some Prima flowers with some brads from my stash, and some photo corners to the top left and bottom right corners of the card.
