Spooky Card

Good morning! We are fast approaching my favorite time of the year, fall and Halloween. I love this time of year in general but I have so much fun with Halloween images and fall colors. For some reason, I just really enjoy coloring Halloween related images, something about all that pretend and dressing up I guess. Patti from Pholkart Blessings is starting to offer challenges with her stamps and this card is for the first challenge. The challenge was to use something shiny and your favorite Halloween colors. No problem! It was overcast here when I took the picture, but the green and black papers are glossy, glittered papers from DCWV and the other papers are are glittery. I used three lighter shades of Copic markers to color my letters and I wanted to mimic the look of the Drippy Goo punch, so I colored them with my colors overlapping. To finish off the card, I layered some orange and black buttons. You also can't see it here, but I painted the eyeballs inside the Os with glow in the dark paint. I couldn't get a photo of it, but I know it will be a nice surprise for my niece. She hangs my cards in her bedroom and she is going to be the recipient of this card. She is still young enough to think I am pretty amazing so that will be even more proof of that for her!

How would you like to join us in this challenge? Well, start by going to the Pholkart page on Paper Craft Planet and join the group (joining is free). Patti is offering this cute digi for FREE to members of her group. After you have completed your project link it on the blog, it's that simple! I would love to see what you make with this digi too, so leave me a comment if you want to play along with the challenge and I will come and check it out.
