Halloween Spider

Okay, so I'm not a big Halloween buff, but I thought this spider was kinda cute, so I went ahead and made a card. You can find the Spider digi stamp at Your Next Stamp. They are offering a free digi stamp this week when you enter their can see more   at.... here for simple entery rules and for the link for your choice of one free from a variety of digis.

 I'm also entering this card at this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge: Simon Says Stamp

Also entered in the ABC -Anything goes challenge:
The other three images are also digi stamps and can be found amongst all the generousity of artists here
Not every artist, (actually most artists don't - but should) incorporates their name into the digistamp name they design, so I'm not sure who I give credit to for the haunted house, the web or the sentiment.

So I used the newest Tim Holtz distress inks here....the Ripe Persimmon. What a fabulous color, deep  and easy to apply. I also used his Black Soot inks and his halloween paper to cut out the "Spiders". I used Glossy Accents all over the spider, and around his eyes, with  drop of two of the black glossy accents in the middle of them. It gives him some great texture. The black cardstack on the background was too plain for me, so I embossed the whole page with glossy powder and a Tim Holtz stamp.
