My Creative Time Halloween Blog Hop!!


Good morning and Happy Friday! Welcome to Day 2 of My Creative Time's Halloween Blog Hop! If you are arriving here from Emma's Blog your at the right spot! I LOVED Emma and the design team's day one projects and I'm sure today won't be disappointing either! They ALWAYS amaze me with their craftiness!

For the above card, I used Emma's, Treats For My Sweet. I did some masking and stacked my pumpkins and the little spooky black cat peeking out onto some water color paper. The reason I used the water color paper, I wanted to use my new waterbrush from CTMH! I filled my waterbrush up with water and then took my Autumn Terracotta ink pad and squeezed it a tad. By doing this it allowed me to pick up the ink with the brush and paint (hope that made sense lol) I did the same with the stem & leaves (I used Pear & Saddle) I then outlined with my black pen to help them stand out. I also added clear stickles to their eyes, nose, & mouth to give them a glow! I used my copics to color my ground. The little bats are also from the Treats for My Sweet set. I already had the fence (Martha Stewart) and grass (Fiskars) left from another project I was going to use them on but changed my mind. I used the Stitched oval die to stamp the sentiment onto and the sentiment is also from the Treats for my Sweet set!


Here is another card I made using the Treats For My Sweet set and the A Frightful Affair cartridge!


I hope no one is getting tired of me making scene cards! It seems to be all I'm wanting to do lately :) But for this card I did decide to use my A Frightful Affair cartridge since it won't be long it will have to sit on the shelf for next Halloween! I added a extra mound of dirt using the Paper Dolls Cartridge. I started out by trying to add some shadows with my copics (the layer that belongs to the cut from A Frightful Affair) but didn't like how it was looking so I wounded up just coloring over the whole thing :( Let's just say that's FRESH dirt bahahaha! The spiders, spider web, black cat, bats, and sentiment are all from Treats For My Sweet. I used my CTMH ink (Outdoor Denim & GoldRush) to create my background. I used pop dots on the tombstone and mound of dirt to add some dimension. Here is a picture from the side...


Thanks for looking and now it's time to hop along to Liz's Blog!
