MDSM36 Halloween Hybrid Bonus Project

I was really tempted by the MDS download, Sophisticated Spook Ensemble, when it came out last year, and when I saw it on sale in the Weekly Deals, I couldn't stop myself.  Then comes the dilemma, actually the rule in my house.  I am not allowed to purchase anything, especially a seasonal item, and just store it away.  So today a bonus MDS Monday project and weekend post, not my norm.

I just love the witch silhouette in this download.  I can imagine all sorts of 3-D decor items, but for now and mostly because I don't have any wall space for more Halloween decor, a quickie hybrid card.

I used my Silhouette Cameo e-cutter to create the silhouette and spider, following the same trace-and-cut process I used in this video.  The spider legs were so fine.  In order not to rip the paper, I ended up enlarging the spider and cutting it out with Whisper White card stock, then coloring in a Basic Black ink pad.

Here's a look at the Sophisticated Spook Ensemble, 50% off through Monday.  So don't delay in grabbing yours for last-minute Halloween crafting.

I really like the color scheme and the subtle embossing of the bats in the background. Great Job!

Wow, you are the master of the MDS hybrid card! This is amazing! Now, the burning question is, did you mask and sponge those bats? Or are they printed from MDS?
