Well, now, don’t all those smiling faces beaming at you make you want to smile right back?
I made this card for a little girl, and that’s one of the best reasons I can think of to cut loose with the fun images and bright colors. At least that’s the reason I’m giving. Honestly, there’s a kid in me that just loves this stuff, too!
I watercolored on 90# hot press watercolor paper with these Tombow Markers:
The designer papers are not Halloween at all, but something old called Kaleidoscope from My Mind’s Eye. I’ve been using them for kids’ Halloween cards for years. I matched them up with Memory Box cardstocks in Wisteria and Key Lime and matted that on Stampin’ Up! Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie. The Wisteria panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder, then sanded to bring out the white core. I also used some CTMH black cardstock in the design. It’s not as black as Stampin’ Up!, but I love that it can be sanded to show the white.
The bat is covered with Black Diamond Stickles, and each character has one tooth glittered with Stardust Stickles (clear). There’s more Stardust on the pumpkin leaf and banner. Not such a great photo sparkle-wise. It’s much more effective in real life.
The Spellbinders dies used are:
And that wraps up Halloween for now. I would have loved to make more Halloween cards for the fun of it, but there are so many things to do just for the fun of it, and only so much time. What’s a girl to do? And what about Christmas? I’ll pop in with a little bit of that on Friday. Hope to see you then! Have a great day!
