October Rainbow Card Challenge 2020


Today over at the Rainbow Card Challenge Blog. We have a NEW challenge! That is to use Smoky Slate in your monochromatic card.

This is my card for the challenge! What do y'all think?

Stamps: TE Labels of Love II, Art Impressions More Candy
Paper: CTMH White Daisy
Ink: CTMH Intense Black
Accessories: Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil, Dylusions Ink Spray Slate Grey, Prismacolor Premier 70% Warm Grey, 50% Warm Grey, 30% Warm Grey, 90% Warm Grey, Beige, Light Peach, Pink Rose, Carmine Red, Orange, Pumpkin Orange, Recollections Halloween, Fun Flock Plain Ol' Black

For this card, I used a stencil and some ink spray to create the background. And for my cute spider, I stamped her out. Then I colored her in with my colored pencils. Once the coloring was complete. I then blended out the pencils using baby oil and my Fantastix.

As for the embellishment next to my sentiment. I created that too. I used a die cut spider that I have. I also used my Xyron machine twice. By doing this I was able to put the fun flock on easier and to make my spider into a sticker.

A complete list of the supplies is under the picture. The list, contains compensated affiliate links. If you wish to create a similar card. There is no cost to you for using the links. But it does provide funds to help continue this blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Crafting,

    1. Thank you! It wasn't an easy color to find. But I did find it in the Dylusions ink spray and Brea Reese has it in their alcohol ink.

  2. Oh my goodness - what a super fun card! I was mesmerized by the great spider web that I missed the cute Halloween spider. What a fabulous image!
