OCC Challenge - Halloween Frights

Happy weekend!!!

As you know Saturday is OCC time!!! Our host Lori with her wonderful wicket mind created another fun challenge. Today she is challenging us to make a card/project *inspired by your favorite scary (or Halloween-themed) book or movie*.

For all the info about this challenge please visit the OCC Blog!!!

I based my card on the movie *The Birds* from Alfred Hitchcock. I think the last time I saw this movie I was very young.....hmmm maybe we should do a movie night tonight :) ?!?

I also combined this card with the IC203 and I chose this beautiful black tee, since it fits the black *frighting* theme!!! To be honest with you the ruffles on the front remined me of the Crow's feather......I know I'm weird - LOL!!!

Here is what I used on my card....the *Halloween* image is from the Crow Stamp by Inkadinkado. This Stamp is available at the Stamper's Dream Store!!!

I inked the image in Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers. I added some Black Kaiser Pearls, Black Ribbon and the cute *web border* is from a MS Punch.

Please visit the OCC Blog for all the Samples and we hope you have a change to play along?!?


Next I would like to announce the winner from the Flourishes Blog Candy Giveaway!!!

The winner is Beth Greco!!!

Silke I love your SPOOKY card.

Okay, Silke, birds as a critter freak me out, so I don't think I'd survive the movie! Your card is spectacular though.

Carol L said...

Congrats to Beth, and WHAT A CARD!!! Wow, your coloring and design is amazing, and I still shudder whenever I think of Tippi Hedrin being attacked by those birds in the attic! EEK!!!! That might have been the last scarey move I watched! LOL

I did have a nightmare after watching the movie when I was a kid. Maybe not so much kids are probably questioning me why everything is B&W, lol.
