La La's weekly Wednesday Challenge #9: GLITTER

Goodmorning everyone,
so nice of you to stop by today.
Challenge #9 already on La La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge.
This weeks assignment.... GLITTER!!!
Boy did I had a hard time finding something with glitter for this challenge.
I used to have a lot of bottles with stickles, but the kids in Ruby's class used all of it a few weeks back on cards they created. Didn't had the chance to replace them yet. And as for glitter in bottles... I banned them from the house. The girls decided to make a few beautifull glitter cards for my parents... they were beautifull but I found glitter everywhere in the house for several weeks. Everything I touched had glitter on it. So no more glitter in our house.
After digging deep in my stash I found some black glitter paper and used this for the bats and spider (doesn't really show on the picture).
And as for my card... I call it a freestyle card or in other words DON'T THINK JUST CUT AND GLUE CARD.
A lot of Dutch ladies use this style of cardmaking and when I'm out of inspiration I use this technique.
For my card I used Witch on the broom Rosie from La La Land Craft and I coloured her with aquapencils and used sansodor to blend.
Papers are from My Mind's Eye - Boo to you.
Bats, spider and text are cut with a die-cut from Cuttlebug.

This card also fitts the following challenges:
Pile it on challenge: ready for Halloween
Cute Card Thursday: Spook Fest
Paper Play Challenges: Favorite Embellishment (mine are gemstones)
Stampin B's: Halloween
Creativ Friday: Halloween
Stampartic: Halloween
Cup Cake Craft Challenge: things that go bump in the night

Have a great day,

xoxo Karin

Hi. Beautiful card. You are very skilled. I tried to make some Halloween cards last weekend but the result was absolutely not satisfying. The skull paper really fits and the witch is also cute. Very inspirational. I think I will try to make another cards this weekend. Hopefully they will be better.

Take care,
