Here's what I've created for you...



For my second sneak peek, I used the Bride of Frankenstein from the Hallo-scream stamp set. I colored her using Copic markers and Wink of Stella. I'm almost positive this is the first time I haven't used an actual skin color on an image of a person. Fun!


I have been on a watercolor kick lately for backgrounds. This time I decided to use Neenah 80 lb cardstock and blend three colors into the cardstock. I used Mowed Lawn, Dusty Concord and Black Soot. I tried not to blend them too much in the center because I didn't want to make mud! I lightly blended Black Soot around the outside of the two colors. Next, I dripped big water droplets onto the blended distress ink and quickly dabbed it up with a paper towel. After that, I pulled out my Gansai Tambi Watercolors and splattered a tiny bit of Gold (No. 91) and Silver (No. 95) across the background. Finally, I stamped the two star stamps that come in this stamp set with Versamark Ink and sprinkled the stars with Ranger Gold embossing powder, melting them with my heat gun. 



I stamped the sentiment, You're Eerie-sistible, with Versafine Onyx Black. The Eerie-sistible stamp looks like it's melting! Love the way it looks stamped! 


For the sequins, I used two new mixes, Hocus Pocus and Witches Brew. In the Hocus Pocus mix, there are these tiny, adorable stars that are just darling. Aren't they sweet? For the bats, I stamped the moon and the bats several times, fussy cut them out and colored them a deep grey with my Copics. I decided to adhere them in place instead of having them float around in the shaker. I did so with Multi Medium Matte. After I put the card together, I used my gold gel pen to draw dash lines all around the circle in the panel and I was finished!
