Going green.....

Yesterday we had our sketch challenge over on Paper Wings.  I sorta followed it. And I wanted to go green and you will see just what I mean by that.  It has nothing to do with the environment but Halloween!!!  So, what about this??

I used various stamp sets, Wonder & Joy (little girl), Spiders Are Seen (text), and Too Spooky (retired - pumpkin).  Isn't this a hoot!



I used a black glitter pen for the pumpkin's face and all the coloring is with Copic markers.  It was when I was uploading my photos that I realized that I didn't color the hair bow.  And I did more blending on the girl's face and now it looks much better.  I need LOTS more practice with those markers!!  Oh, the pattern paper is from the retired Simply Spooky paper pack which I'm having fun using right now. I stamped the pumpkin with Burnt Umber PH ink, the text with Noir PH ink, and the little girl with Tuxedo Black Momento ink.  And the cool trim along the long side is a piece of Black Bazzill Cardstock Strip.  We no longer carry it but I sure have a bunch left!

Also, we have some GREAT news!!  All Copic Caboodle sets are available for purchase again!!!  If you have a $100 net order or more you can purchase a set for 40% off!!!  Or any accessory that's in the catalogs, for that matter.  And stamps are 1/2 price with a $100 net order.

Going green is carooooolll cool! Good plan for some second scan eyecandy. Since Oct 31 is a friend's birthday and we choose to celebrate the day that way, green is way too good! Thanks for sharing.
Pray for Malta. Malta lost five businesses in a fire night before last. Check out Blgs. Gzt. for some deets. So hard to read and see the demise of local trade areas.
Blessings on your day,
Keep Looking UP!
