Scary Orange Spiders

This is for today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE - S.O.S.. My SOS is
S- Spiders, Scardy Cat, stickles, Scallop, Square
O- Orange pumpkin
S- Spooky theme, Satin Ribbon, shimerez

and since Shannon restricted me to 1 challenge yesturday and I lived through it I just had to come back to my normal multichallenges (see my tongue stickin out at her?). This is also for Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Step Out of Your Box today I did watercoloring and many matted layers where I typically use copic coloring and rarely matt all the layers when there are 3 or more and I usually cheat by cutting the centers out if I do matt more than 2 layers so that the card does not weigh as much but today, no cheating for me. So not like me. I used Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE for my layout and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Crushed Black Razzleberries. I stamped my image in black on watercolor paper then colored with watercolor crayons. Then I painted on some shimmerz Gold on the pumpkin and filled the eyes and mouth section with stickles. I tied some black and yellow satin ribbon on panel 2 then popped up a Martha Stewart spider and my main panel. My image is from Hambo and the sentiment is from the dollar rack at Michaels from yrs ago. I love how this turned out and hope you do too.

So cute, Neva! Definitely spooky! Love that paper, the batty border and those eerie stickle-sparkle eyes!
