Dynamic Duos #71 - BEWARE

Ha!  Did I get your attention with that post title?

I'm here with my design team card for Dynamic Duos #71.  This week we have such a versatile color duo.  You can in any direction with this combo.  Seriously.  Oh, and we have a Dessert Option...wet embossing.

I usually don't get much into making Halloween cards.  But, I'm seeing so many cute dies and stamps lately AND I've realized these how much fun it can be to create something for this occasion.  So, here goes!

This card really was a lot of fun to create.  I started with a kraft base and panel, then tore strips of black card stock to place behind my spider web.  Tearing is one of the first techniques I learned, all of those years ago, when I first began paper crafting.  Kinda fun to use it again!
The spider web and the spiders were made using some Memory Box dies I bought recently at an Expo.  It doesn't show in these photos, but I added a few swipes from my Wink of Stella brush to the "spokes" of the web.  It glimmers IRL.  You'll have to trust me on that one. :)
Those little spiders needed a little something extra, so I added black embossing to their little bodies.  My sentiment is also embossed.

Now it's time to pop on over to the Dynamic Duos blog now, and see what my teammates have created!

Thanks so much for taking a look today!
