"Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits." ~ History.com
This week, CAS-ual Fridays is asking for a clean and simple Halloween creation that does not feature any orange, not a speck! There's a lot more details, challenge rules, information about our fabulous sponsor, Clear Dollar Stamps, and great inspiration from the other Girl Fridays over at the CAS-ual Fridays blog.
My card was inspired by the above photo from this site. I sprayed layers of purple and black mist onto a card base, added the sentiment sticker, stamped the spooky spiders and web and finished the card off with some burlap string.
I can't wait to see your no orange Halloween creation!
