CAS(E) this Sketch #51

It's hard to believe we're almost at the end of October already! There's a great sketch by N@ Ali over at CAS(E) this Sketch with some fun and simple clustered elements going on, check it out...

I find I have a hard time wrapping my head around collage styles, so I tried to translate it as best I could. I'm stuck in Hallowe'en groove for a while until it passes, so of course I went with that theme again this week. I kept the orientation of the card the same, but I flipped all the elements to the top so the plane image would be pointing down. The spider represents the plane, the string of jewels the banner and the post mark became my sentiment. Just for an extra spidery depth, I embossed a web in white on the card base and inked a bit of black to make it stand out a bit.

The design team would love to have you play along this week and be sure to come back next week on Hallowe'en to play another round!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great crafty day!
