Screaming Color!

For H{ippity} Hop Monday, just click here

Before I share the rest of this little project I have got
to share what's been happening since I got my new laptop.


Need I say more?????

It began with a simple cross-town chat with my daughter
who then proceeded to Skype me each time one of my
grandsons came in the door so they could give it a try.
How fun!

Then, I was able to spend some time with my team mate
over the weekend.  We quickly decided to conduct our
own 'personal' play dates via Skype.
 All in the name of creativity, right?!

Then today, my bestie Sarah, who most of you know
is from the UK and is my PDCC partner made her
very first Skype connection....with me!
So I am pretty sure there is no stopping us now!

I had a lot of fun putting the elements together for this
spooky little scene.  My friend Michele at Studio MSG
is a designer over at the DeNami Designs and is the host
for the current challenge, which happens to a color challenge.

I love a good 'color splash' and this one
ScReaMeD HalloweeN !!!!!
(get it.....?)

I purchased a new stamp set from Martha Stewart
that I loved SO much, I paid full price!
I put it to work immediately and came up with this
simply layered design.
You may recognize the border as a 'Martha' as well.
It was really fun once I started adding the bits of
to the chandelier, the chair and the spider's line.

(bad photo...but it really sparkles.....)
Always happy to support new challenges and I can't
resist a good 'color challenge'!

I also know that Paige is asking for 100% stamped
cards this week over at the CARDS blog.
This one sure qualifies, so I am going to give this
a go over there as well.

I was wondering...
(since you're here and you were going to leave a comment anyway, right?)

What are your favorite colors to use for Halloween projects?
Do you still kinda like the black and orange look?
Or how about something with deep purple?

Sure appreciate you taking a moment to share!

It's a wicked card Julie Ranae! The colors are a bit unconventional but they really work! You've got frightful elements and well executed plans. MMwwwahhhhhhhhhhahahahah.
(I still like orange, black, dark purple, lime green and a tad of yellow - very conventional).

What a gorgeous card! Thank you so much for playing along with our DeNami color challenge! Good luck! :)

Fabulous card! I love how you incorporated the fun DeNami color scheme into a Halloween card. Very unique! Personally, I think it's more fun to use "non-traditional" colors for occasions, such as Halloween.
Oh, and by the way... I LOVE Skype too! I use it all the time. It's so fun to be able to "see" people while you talk to them, even though they might be miles and miles away!
Thanks so much for playing with us for the DeNami Design challenge! :)

Hi Julie,

We don't celebrate Halloween here in the Netherlands, but I always love to watch the cards that you made! I'm not very into yellow myself, purple would be great, kinda more darky, but I also totally love this card that you made here! What a fantastic and scary scene! the spider alone is scary to me, I hate spiders, ha ha!! Very original card!!


Jaclyn Miller said...

This card is totally ROCKIN'! I love how you created such a creepy scene with pink.

I don't make many Halloween cards but when I do, I like to stick to Black/Orange and a bit of lime green.

Jenny said...
