Green Beauty.....

Hello everyone: There is a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, this time we want to see ZOMBIES, WALKING CORPSES, ETC. we are trying to encourage you to add some fun Halloween cards to your stash so, here is my card and I hope it inspires you to join my teammates and me in the gallery.

Ain't she gorgeous? she is from Krafting Kimmie but I'm afraid this particular stamp is discontinued, I bought it a good 5 years ago.
So this time I did a mayor Shopping of my Stash to create this card. I used two leftover pieces of card stock, the one with the bats and the black one with the embossed Birch Trees from SU.  The spider web in the corner is also from SU, I just cut it in half and then in fourths.
The image is stamped on a piece of watercolor paper with Versafine ink and colored with Sakura Koy watercolors, I sponged a bit of Shabby Shutters and Black Soot distress inks all around this cutie pie.
The spider on the corner and the pumpkin she is holding are, believe it or not, confetti.

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card. I always finish the inside to save me time when I need to mail my cards to family and friends. 

I used the other fourth of the cut our spider web and another little confetti spider, the sentiment is from a Stapin' Up! set called "Dark and Dreary", from the 2010 Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini.

So come and join my teammates and me in the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, be sure to check out the rest of the cards the Designer Team created for your inspiration.
Leave us your comments, we love to hear what you think.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Great stash shopping! I recognized those spider webs...SU was ingenious to make them two sided! Awesome inside of your card, too.

Super cute card, wonder where I was when those spiderwebs came out? Love the KK image, I only have a couple and she lives 45 miles from me. Love your colouring and the design too.
