ATCs Week 3

Here are some more entries in the Not So Round Robin Challenge that Kim is hosting for Swirlydoos.

For week #3, the category is "Holiday" and I've chosen Halloween.
I've used some odds and ends that I have , along with chipboard die cuts from Creative Embellishments and Dusty Attic and stickers from Graphic 45's Rare Oddities.

Karen has gathered a bunch of vintage images perfect for Halloween on her Graphics Fairy blog (a fantastic resource!) and I've chosen her #14 - Serious Woman - for my first card. I've embellished her with a bit of lace, a G45 sticker, a few berries and a Creative Embellishments bat that I've inked with Ranger's Black Soot Distress Ink .

Next up is a photo of two little girls from long, long ago celebrating the holiday with creepy homemade costumes. A Rare Oddities tag and sticker, a few pieces of black bling and a couple Creative Embellishments carved pumpkins backed with black cardstock and colored with Ranger's Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink are all I need to embellish these sweeties.

It just wouldn't be Halloween without mention of Edgar Allen Poe's "Raven". I've had this Dusty Attic chippie for quite a while; time to trot him out, ink him up and adorn him with some sparkle trim. I've used a snippet of purple netting trim in the background and simple cardstock to print out the beginning lines of the poem.
