Penny Black And More Mid October – Autumn Colours

i’m back with a reminder that you still have plenty of time to play along with this month’s autumn colours theme at the penny black and more challenge. i made another halloween card; it’s one of the few times of the year that i use orange, my least favourite colour. :)


i watercoloured the sky and this cute little hedgie from the penny black ‘scary halloween’ clear stamp set with twinkling H2Os and matted it on a die cut white stitched circle, sponged with seedless preserves distress ink. the image is popped on foam tape against the textured orange cardstock, embossed with the darice fall leaf embossing folder. the sentiment is from the ‘trick or treat’ set.

i hope you’ll come and play along – remember, you can use any company’s stamp for your focal point, just no digis please; a future guest designer will be selected from those who use a PB image and as always, there are some fabulous prizes to be won from: Penny Black, PPR Papercrafts, Marianne Designs. visit the blog for some fabulous creations by my teamies.

i’d like to submit this card to these challenges:
simon says stamp monday – wonderful watercolour
kathy’s 30 day colouring challenge
noor! design uk challenge 11 – halloween/autumn
one crazy stamper – Christmas/Halloween/Fall
thanks for popping by.

  1. This is so very sweet! Just how I love Halloween stamps (and also Halloween decorations, costumes etc.) not scary but cute! Love the embossing and fun colors!

  2. Awesome card! Love the embossing, and the hedgie is too cute. I love cutesy fall/Halloween themed stuff.

  3. Aaaah how cute and i’m loving that super embossing too, i only have 1 Halloween image and i’ve only used that once too, as i don’t really do trick or treat, Luv Sam x

  4. If I could create cards just like you, I’d be a millionaire. Really, I would be. I love that EF, Linda. It’s so perfect against that sweet PB image. Of course, your coloring skills are beyond comparison. Sweet sweet card.

  5. Gorgeous card Linda, love the sweet PB stamp and l agree with you orange is not an easy colour to work with . Love the embossing folder too x Susan x

  6. I’m not keen on orange either, so when I got my latest little marianne fox die and discovered he only looks any good in orange I had a problem! Only got scraps of orange card so need to get some now.
    I love this card it is so sweet and the colours are perfect, and now I NEED that embossing folder.

  7. Linda, your soft colouring is gorgeous! And you’re right, it’s the one time of year that orange looks perfect on a card – thanks for joining our October challenge at One Crazy Stamper!
