HALLOWEEN 2010


Halloween, it's my favorite holiday! Perhaps it's because I have such wonderful memories of how much fun it was going trick-or-treating with my brothers and sisters when we were kids on those dark cold nights. And now, I love having my little granddaughters all dressed up coming to my house to trick-or-treat on Halloween night!

It's always a lot of fun blog hopping around this time of year so I can see what everyone makes for their Halloween cards. I just love seeing all of the different images!

There are so many challenges this week for Halloween cards! My card is being used for the following challenges this week:

Craftycreationschallenges - Thewildflowerpatch
Lilredwagon - BloggersChallenge
Paperplaytime - ellephantasticchallenges 
Cowgirlssundaystampenchallenge - Crazy4challenges
Corrosivechallengesbyjanet - Acraftylittleplace

I decided to use a wonderful set by Stampin' UP called Tableau of Terror for this years card. I just love this image and even though it has a lot of coloring on it, it was much easier to do using my Copics R24, YG93, V95, YR12, YR20, W3, E00,E33, E50, E55. The retired "Canvas" background stamp was used along with Pumpkin Pie ink. Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Pumpkin Pie card stock was used. I dug out my rarely used Magic Mesh, along with my color duster brush and some Creamy Caramel ink to brush over the vanilla paper, giving the color a more uneven look.

I hope you all have lots of little ghosts and goblins trick-or-treating at your house this year.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
