Happy Halloween! I hope you're having a great Halloween weekend! My son, Matthew, went to two parties on Saturday night and had a blast! I will miss tonight's festivities...I have music practice that I can't afford to miss. As much as I love to sing, I'll be sad to miss seeing all the little ghouls and goblins who will come trick-or-treating. If I hadn't missed last week, and if our performance were not just around the corner, I would skip and stay home!
How would you like to do a little early trick-or-treating of your own? Comment on this post between October 31st and November 2nd to be eligible to win a Gourmet Rubber Stamps holiday treat! Be sure to comment on each of our designers' posts as well, because each blog has a separate prize! Winners will be announced on the GRS blog on Thursday.
This fun Hallow's Eve stick chick card embodies all I love about Halloween...bright colors, cute-but-not-too-scary images, and some sparkly embellishments! I started out with a rectangle of Copic blending paper, stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored her with Copic markers. After coloring the background with pale yellows and yellow-oranges, I sponged in some billowy gray-black clouds using a scalloped circle mask and soot distress ink, then finished with a spritz of orange Smooch.
All of the edges of the card stock and designer paper were sponged with soot distress ink. I added a sparkly bat, and a quilled flower layered with glimmer ribbon, an orange button, a sparkly bone, and twine.
