Eerie Trick or Treat Bella
Hello!! Finally back with something new, some halloween cards!! I had so much fun with these, I had to make two. I have this habit of stamping and colouring my images in rough first so I can try out colours and I use plain old white cardstock and then when I'm happy I stamp on Bella's Best paper and colour with the copics. Well, this time, I like the rough copy just as much so I used her too and doubled up on the cards!! Can you tell which one was the rough and which one was the good copy?
I used Basic Grey's Eerie paper and skull brads and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Skeleton Scroll and brushed on some black ink on the orange card stock and some whisper white ink on the black cardstock to highlight the embossing. Bella has some Paprika Stickles on her costume and I used a glittery bat and web for a little more embellishment. The Thriller stamp set from CTMH ties in nicely with the Eerie paper too I though so I used the skull image and one of the sentiments on the insides. Quite happy with how they turned out!!
I used this week's sketch from Stamping Bella's Bellerific Fridays
and I'm also entering this in the Crafty Calendar Challenge which is 'Spooky' this month.
