Hi there! Here's a card of mine for the Anything goes with a Twist challenge. The twist being use something old, something new. I have used Halloween 2 from the Halloween Collection at Fitztown. I have cut out the branches by hand. I use a pair of nail scissors for that. I would definitely recommend having a pair of nail scissors (with a small bend) for crafting. My other most used crafting supply would be acrylic paint - sun gold (brand: Traditional Craft Paint). It adds lots of dimension to the crafts project.
What's old in this card is the forest background, which I cut out from an "old" children's magazine (Kamratposten 2007). The pumpkins are new and come from a paper sheet named Scary Moment/Pumpkin by Landstoken AB. If interested, you can find the rest of the card recipe on my blog. You can also find some Halloween freebies like bloody hands, vampire in attack mode and another vampire.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the current challenge. There's still a week left to play along!
