Passion For Promarkers - fright night!

Hello everyone :o)

Our challenge for this week at Passion For Promarkers is 'fright night' (or Halloween).  We're sponsored by our very own Michele, who is offering one lucky winner 3 of her fab digi paper packs which are available at Whimsy Designs.  

I really didn't want to make another Halloween creation that would just sit there unused, so I cheated and made something a bit more general... My mum will snap this one up, she likes cute witchy stuff!




Don't look too closely at my colouring!  I was trying something a bit different - I wanted a fairly solid black, with white highlights, rather than the grey tones I usually use, so I coloured with black and then added touches of white prisma pencil... not totally successful, but you have to try these things don't you?!

Items Used
Scallop edge card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Halloween Hattie - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - promarkers, flexmarkers & prisma pencils
Papers - Echo Park Summer Days - MCH
Sentiment - Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments - LOTV
Rainbow ribbon - Fantastic Ribbons
Memory Box Simple Banner die - MCH
Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White - MCH
MeiFlower Pink Mix pearls - MCH

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Songbird Challenges - could it be magic?
Crafty Sentiments - seeing stars
Cupcake Craft - witches & pumpkins
Moving Along With The Times - too cute to spook
My Mum's Craft Shop - so spooky

Off for a couple of hours crafting while the boys are happy playing their games (it's the school hols this week), but I'll be around later to catch up with your blogs.  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

  2. I think the white pencil is really effective and was just thinking how did she get the black to look so black. I love the Halloween images but have no one to send them to but I like the idea of a cute witch card. Hugs, Amanda x

  27. What a sweet, colorful card, Lisa! This little witch with a broom and a spider is great! If spiders had looked so sweet in real life I wouldn't have had any issues with them, but they aren't that cute in real life, are they...
