Hello

          Buttons and Orange
Here's my second card today.
I've had a lovely crafty day.
Update..I am delighted to have been chosen as 
a Top Three for this card from Cardz4guyz
and
Hi-lighted at The Mixed Media Card Challenge
Thank you so much x
The Challenge at Cardz4guyz is 'Button It'
and 
The Challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge is a colour one..
Black and Orange with an optional element of glitter
and
The challenge at Just us Girls is
a trend week-Use Stencils
I started by colouring embossing paste with an
Orange magical powder by Lindys' stamp gang.
I spread this through the 'web' stencil onto black CS.
I found some black buttons and attached them to the card using glossy accents.
I scribbled some legs onto the spiders.
(one of them has nine legs!).
I die cut several layers of the sentiment Hello and layered them up.
I thought it was quite funny to put the Hello sentiment 
on as if the spiders where popping in to say hi!
I finished off with a freehand border of orange stickles glitter.

The Button Challenge/Guys card-Used black buttons 
Mixed media challenge-Used Orange and Black/stencil and embossing paste
Just us Girls-Used the 'web' stencil.
Loved how the three challenges came together.

Oh wow, what a brilliant way to use those buttons! I always say I don't have any Halloween stash but I have black buttons aplenty so I can't use that excuse any more. Thank you for sharing and inspiring us at Cardz 4 Guys.

Yes not everything will cover the black but the Lindy's magicals really worked colouring the embossing paste, so long as you don't use a translucent paste! Thanks for stopping by x
