Challenge #21 - "Halloween" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters well this fortnights Challenge over on Cards for Men is being sponsored by my favourite company The Paper Shelter and this time its all about "Halloween" and if you like me you have several little ones you like to send cards to so now is your chance to get ahead of the date and use your Halloween stamps to create a card.
As I said we are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter


And they are offering a fabulous prize of :- $20 Gift Certificate
And this is what they say about themselves:-

If you are looking for fun, cute and lovely digi stamps for your paper-crafting or web design projects, The Paper Shelter is your one-stop boutique! This growing catalog of high-quality digi stamps with many different kind of options offers a multitude of themes such as everyday items, holidays, special occasions, children, adorable characters and creatures. Stamps are available in standard black and white line art, as well as in pre-colored format.Images are wonderful for coloring and make perfect additions to greeting cards and scrapbook albums.

And as I work with The Paper Shelter I was lucky enough to be able to choose any of the image to play with and for a change I used this one for the first time.


This is the "Little Apprentice" and you will find him here, and he does remind me of Disney's The Apprentice where Mickey Mouse does awful things with the Magicians things, anyway I have printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copic pens, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 and a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and this has been stamped also onto white card then mounted onto black card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of black card, and the papers are from some scrapes I had left in my stash and they are a mixture of black, beige with has had the edges torn and purple with spirals on it.
On top of this I have cut and placed a spiders web from Memory Box in the top left hand corner and dangled a spider from this also a Memory Box die. The mounted image was then placed in the center towards the top, then down the right I have used ghosts also another of the Memory Box dies, then at the bottom I have placed my sentiment.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented design team have created for your inspiration and then take part in this "Halloween" Challenge.
