Inspired by

Today I have a card I made using one of  Anna Marine's images called "Captivated by Silence", sheet #1, Plate #160.  I don't know about you but I love this image and all of Anna Marine's artwork is just so beautiful and lifelike.  If you like her you have to go and check out the rest of her artwork that Lynette of Sweet Pea Stamps has turned into rubber HERE.
I used some Basic Grey DP, DCVW DP, Sizzlets corner and Flourish dies, Distressing ink in Black Soot, and the ribbon was made using some purple and black Gingham wired ribbon.

 The image was colored with copics.
Skin:E11,E01,E00,E000 and E0000
Hair: E51,E53,E57,E47,E49
Top and Roses: RV91,RV93,RV95,RV99,RV00,V99
Background: RV91,RV93,V00,V01,V91 and V95

I hope you like her.  I took my pics outside so it kind of washes out her skin.  There is a lot more shading on her skin in real life.

 For this Card I wanted to make a Halloween card, as I wanted to color this sweet image by Terra Bidlespacher.
The name of this image is "Moonlight Hijinks" , and you can get her as a single or on  

I used some Martha Stewart Halloween papers, American crafts ribbon, K&Company die cut 3D bats and the sentiment is from Sweet Pea Stamps and I cut it up and attached it to the little banner.

Here are some close ups of the image.  I really love how this image turned out.  I used all warm grey copic marker, W00,W1,W3,W5,W7,and W9

Here is a little tag I made using another one of Terra Bidlespacher adorable images.  I just love her artwork, a little dark but also oh so cute.  I used "Tad Batty", from sheet #5, Plate #155 or she can be purchased as a single.

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you for all your sweet comments.
