Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

halloween - Take 4

Hi, thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday, and just to let you know that I'm working on a tutorial for making my trick or treat boxes.  In the meantime I thought you might like a look at this really spooky card.......

this is the stamp plate I used - it's called SPOOKYLICIOUS!!!!!!

The raven and verse were stamped with a clear Perfect Medium inkpad, and embossed with a fine black embossing powder.  The background paper from the Artylicious CD Essense of Nature and distress inks added a bit more colour. I punched the leaf shape out of the paper to show the black of the base card.

Promarkers and glossy accents helped give dimension to the moon and clouds and
my finished card - really enjoyed making this one.

One day to go before the winners are drawn, hope you find the candy...did I say where to look?
  No, well pop over the the EIDT blog - even if you don't find the candy there are lots of cards and ideas on show.

"When black cats prowl and pumpkins glea
May luck be yours on Halloween."

See you tomorrow, enjoy your day
ikki

Another wonderful card and what a good idea to punch the leaf out of the paper instead of punching out a leaf - something a bit different.

Your Halloween card is rather splendid, the black images against the BG really make it look so 'right' TFS

Brilliant card Ikki. The background paper works beautifully and I love that raven/crow image too. Mind you, I've grown to love all of these Halloween stamps having had chance to play with them for a couple of weeks.

Hugs
