Witchy with her cute friends

MFT-Halloween

  • Stamps – My Favorite Things “Witch Way is the Candy” clear stamp set
  • Embossing folder – Sizzix Texture Fades – Tim Holtz “Cobwebs”
  • Copic markers
  • Wink of Stella
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and BoBunny

I really enjoyed coloring these stamped images!  The little animals are so cute. I colored each with Copic markers and cut them out by hand. I popped up the frog with some foam adhesive and made a little spring out of paper so the bat would pop out and wiggle a bit. The background is black cardstock embossed with the Cobwebs Texture Fades by Sizzix. I was so pleased to be able to borrow the embossing folder from a friend while I was putting this card together! I then colored the web with my Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle (you know, the way a web would sparkle in the sun). For a closer look, some of the details are shown below.

I am entering this into the Friday Mashup Challenge this week for its Halloween theme. I’ve also been coloring along this month with Kathy’s coloring challenge at The Daily Marker: 30 Day Coloring Challenge. We try to color at least 10 minutes a day! Thanks for visiting today.mft-halloween-kitty

‘Tis the season to begin creating all things Halloween! This card features a happy pumpkin with a mouse friend. I colored the stamped iUnderYourSpell-closemage with Copic markers and then layered papers to bring out the various colors in the image. This is also fits the challenge right now at Crafts Galore for a Halloween themed card. This card took me way longer than it should have to construct! I’ve been kind of in a creative slump lately and just not had time to complete a card, so it was a relief to get this put together! Thanks for visiting!
