Playing with Gilli and Halloween

Gilli challenge #18 is to use at least 3 of the following colours- purple, orange, green, black and white. I used all of them...Let's face it, my paper from DCWV made it easy. 

The first thing I did was colour up Lady Gilli and give her fun purple hair. I then paper pieced her dress using some paper from Authentique then added glitter to really make it pop and look all shiny- web like. I then grabbed my Martha Steward spooky fence punch to add more dimension to the card. I was pretty lucky though- this page had the fun swirls and house already on it. There really wasn't much else to add or I would have been covering it up. I did add a sentiment from the same DCWV paper pack and then some punched bats. Anja made me buy the punch a bunch tool kit awhile back and I used it for the first time tonight to deboss my bats and make them pop. All right Anja- you were right..I love it hee hee. Last but not least some fun googlie eyes went into the windows of the house to give it some more 'monster' vibe. I found them while cleaning and sorting my crafty crap. It's like Christmas sometimes when I do that- finding all the things I had misplaced and forgotten about hee hee!

I hope you get some crafty time in today and can play along with us over at the Gilli challenge blog. Tune in tomorrow for my first post as part of the Color Me Creative Classroom DT with Suzanne Dean!
