In New Zealand, Halloween is not normally a holiday that we recognise.  But as the world is becoming a smaller place, we are starting to see more and more people really getting into it.

At Global Design Project this week, we have a fabulous sketch challenge for you (as always, lol) and I decided to go with the Halloween theme, since it is not too far away now.  Personally, I don't celebrate the holiday, but I adore the spooky images in the Stampin' Up! range this year!

I also love shaker cards and wanted a chance to play with the new Foam Adhesive Strips Stampin' Up! released in the new catalogue this year, especially designed for shaker cards!  You can find them on page 182!  Honestly, these make shaker and spinner cards a doddle!

I did take a wee bit of creative licence with the sketch, but hey, it's all about interpretation!  I used an aquapainter to create my spooky background on watercolour card, which I then adhered to my card front.  I cut my window and frame and placed a window sheet behind.  I then stuck my spooky die cut tree to the back of the window sheet and then added my foam strips to frame the window.  I sprinkled sequins on my watercoloured background and then laid my card front over top.

By adding my tree to the window sheet, the sequins rattle around behind the image instead of over the top of it.  I really like the look.  What do you think?

  2. Paula, even without this being a shaker card it is fabulous! Love that framed scene.

  3. I love the brick wall and the scene in window. I used your card as inspiration for my entry to GDP058. I like brick walls. :)
