BE Inspired by The Alley Way Stamps - Guest Design Post

Hello friends!  Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend!
-------------

I am SO excited to be apart of the BE Inspired (TAWS) Challenge this month!
I had won a previous challenge and was honored when I had won a guest design spot.

For this month's challenge, here's the really FUN and festive looking inspirational photo:
-------------

So, if you look at the top right photo with the spider, this is the one that I focused on for the inspiration with the card I'm sharing today:
I tell you, this little guy really makes me smile!  He's actually really not a Halloween type of guy at all, but I didn't have any Halloween stamps...so I used this fun TAWS stamp set called Meltdown.  The sentiment at the bottom comes from the Now You See Me stamp set.

I was inspired by the top right inspirational photo and used the black twine and button to mimic the spider in the corner.  The mirror inspired my white panel with a vellum overlay and I embossed the eyeballs to mimic the webbing over mirror.  The little “one-eyed” guy is meant to mimic the lamp on the table.

Here's a closer view of the "orange pill guy"...
I've got him popped up over the vellum and I colored him in with my Copics and added some glossy accents to his eyeball.  I took a white gel pen and added some dots to his cheeks and then added a bow with some black twine that I colored with my Copic marker and then I added some black enamel dots to the ends of his antennas.

So what do think?  Want to play along?  Go check out the challenge blog...CLICK HERE!
Don't have any TAWS stamps?

I can't wait to see what you'll be coming up with using the photo!!
