Cute with a dark twist

Cute with a dark twist is the theme of the new challenge today at  Crafty Cardmakers  and I have used a Stitchybear Stamps image called Edward and Bella which I thought was quite cute and made a Halloween card - as I've said before I don't generally do much for Halloween but as I have a couple of craft fairs before the 31st I thought it might be useful to have a couple of cards to display.


I have used Promarkers to colour the image, distressed all the edges of the patterned papers and doodled a little cobweb which is perhaps a little small for the spider crawling out from behind the sentiment (it's half hidden because one of my cats had chewed off a leg!) Some lace and a button from my stash and a freebie sentiment from Marion at When the Scrap Hits the Fun completed my card.

What a fabulous card! I don't know the characters, but they still make a great pair, and that spider looks quite menacing hiding there!
