As it is Wednesday, I'm back with my second card for the day. It is also time for another Inky Impressions challenge, and this week we would like you to make a Halloween card OR use orange and black on your card.

As mentioned (probably more than once), I don't have a lot in the way of Halloween, so I decided to use the rubber stamp "Pirate Christopher" (CS110-PC07) as a dressed up trick-or-treater. All he needs is a big bag for collecting his bounty of Halloween treats, and he'll be all set to have a good time on 31st October!

I have stamped Christoper onto X-Press It brand card using Momento black ink and colored him with Copic markers. My card base is a white 6 x 6" card. As with my other card for today, I've folded the front back on itself. I've used black card for my matting, and my DP is from a Halloween pad by Martha Stewart. The front die (which fit over the colored image piece) is an orange frame I found in my stash. The black swirl on the side was cut from black and silver paper using Doohickeys die 010607004-5, and the smaller white swirl is cut with Doohickeys BDH Heart Swirl die. The two skulls are chipboard and were cut off a bigger chipboard design I found in my stash. Aren't they cute? They have googly eyes! The corner piece on the inside of the card is a Spellbinder die. You can't quite tell from the photo, because of the black and silver coloring, but it is somewhat web-shaped.

Now, hop on over to the Inky Impressions challenge blog to have a look at the other DT cards, then pull out your black and orange or favorite Halloween images/papers and join in our weekly challenge. Remember, you do not have to use and Inky Impressions image, but if you do, you double your chances for our random drawn prize win.
