Be Inspired Challenge #58


Time for a new challenge at The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenge!! We have a fun Halloween inspiration to get you in the Halloween mood!! Don't forget you have like 3 weeks left o play along and you have a chance to win a stamp set and be a guest designer!! Here is the photo inspiration!!

I really loved the blue pick-up truck with the orange pumpkins in the back bed, so i decided to use those as my main colors. I found a chevron die that i haven;t used yet. So cut it from black, blue and orange card stocks. I also cut the chevron pattern from a piece of white cardstock. I pushed out all the the positive pieces from the white panel and i adhered it to a white card base.

Next i placed the positive pieces from the blue, black and orange cuts into the negative on my card base. I played around with the placement, but once i liked it i glued them into place.

I really wanted to use this Zombie sentiment from the Bumps in the Night stamp set, in fact i tried using it last week but it wasn;t working for the card i was making. I already had a couple of the brains cut (i used the stamps matching SVG file) and stamped, so i was determined to use the brains and sentiment with this card!! I finished stamping the brains and then used a couple distress markers to color them.

I cut a stitched rectangle from white card stock and stamped the sentiment off to the side in black ink. Next i added the brains to the other side of the sentiment. I added the stitched panel to my card base with foam tape. I thought it still needed something so i added a few black sequins!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I can't wait to see your take on the Halloween inspiration!!
