Halloween Spider

Today I have a Halloween card to share that is more cute than scary.
I used Serendipity stamps (Spider) and (Boo, large).  The spider is embossed in back and colored with copics and stickles.  He is hanging over a Stampin Up embossing folder (Spider Web).  I tried something new to me with this card.  I used a brayer to spread ink over the flat side of the embossing folder.  I wanted the raised portion to stand out and by using the same color ink as the cardstock, the raised portion is just a bit lighter.  The ink is PTI Winter Wisteria and did make quite a difference when you compare an inked sheet vs a non-inked sheet.  The last touch on this card is the little pair of googly eyes to make him a cute spider, just perfect for a card for my 3 year old niece.
