Cute ?? Spidey

Hiya folks!

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far? Bit of a grey start here, but sun coming through nicely. Might hit the garden in a bit.

So I am making this a quickie post! My card today is for the Haunted Design House challenge 'Creepy Cute'. I have spent much of this week deliberating over this one I'll tell ya! Already dispatched 2 cards to the bin. So this is my final try. Not doing it any more (stomp)! LOL.

I coloured my little 'Spidey the Spider' image digitally, but it turned out quite flat-looking. Maybe I'll get the pencils out next time. This was printed twice on a sheet of A4 paper and cut out (fiddly or what!) I have curled spidey's legs to make him more life-like, and drew some white bits as highlights.

I printed out my cobweb backing (ooops, not got this in the shop yet - will have to sort that out!) onto orange card, and smudged black ink all over, then put stickles over it. Then I cut round the web shape, making it a shaped card. Hopefully it is acceptable at Polka Doodles, where they want shaped cards (no squares, rectangles or circles).

Delightful Challenges are after 'Cute Halloween' this week, so I am entering there too. At SCSC the challenge is 'CAS' - yep - defo that. No embellies, no ribbons, just me card and image and stickles! Think it might be OK for Papertake as well, their challenge is 'Just the One', well I have only one piece of cardstock - or one bit of bling (they're not counting the image!) Hope it's OK for this one.

Right, not such a quick post after all huh? LOL. Off to hit the garden now then, as long as the wet stuff stays away!! Have a great weekend folks! TTFN
