Im in LOVE with this Blogger's Cards.

I have always been a fan of Halloween and this year i have stepped back from it and get Christmas going super early. I came across this post back in August when all the new goodies came out. I contacted the owner to ask for permission to post this on her behalf.

This post has been already published but she has been so kind to let me share this amazing project with you.

With out further ado here is the post, You will have to check out the rest of the post on Mischelle's blog, the link is found below or on the side, just click on the card.



When I saw this card (LEFT) from Donna at DAT's My Style ... I was inspired to pull out my Frightfully Fun Stamp Set and start getting it inky.

I now have handfuls of little pieces colored and cut ... just waiting to be mounted on a card.

In the meantime ... I kept coloring.  And I thought it would be fun to incorporate my
 Sweet As Sugar Hostess Stamp Set and do something a little freaky ... which is so me!  {smiles}


I have to admit ...  this was SO.MUCH.FUN!  I LOVED coloring these images with my Twin Touch Markers!
I did use my Glacier Ink Pad and a sponge dauber to add a hint of color around my jars of skulls.
I also used my Graphite Pencil and a stump to drop some color in under the jars and ground them.








Haunted BOO!


And now we have CREEPY, EERY, haunted boo!
This was just as much FUN to color as Happy Boo!
The middle jar and single skull are also cut out and popped up.



So one of my FAVORITE new things is this Silver Washi Tape from CTMH.  I LOVE IT!
It has a GORGEOUS shimmer and shine to it ... so classy and elegant and frightfully fun!
OH!  And Liquid Glass ... it's as important as the air I breathe ... LOL!

For this card I used some of my Copic Grays ... I wanted a variety of gray tones.
I also used my W1 Gray to go over the back jars to bring down the green tone and make them
appear farther back.  I have a very heavy hand so I decided to start with light tones!



The cob webs I just sketched in randomly.
I also used my CTMH Whisper Ink Pad and sponge dauber to color all around this image.
This is an AWESOME ink pad that I will be using for many upcoming projects!

TIP:  I also relied heavily on my colorless blender to wash out my Pastel Green
and some of my Gray areas!

I highlighted areas with my Twin Touch Warm Grey 7 after I finished coloring.


I hope you enjoy my two takes on this design!
And for those visual folks, like me, the masking how to is below!
