Halloween is this month...

and you know it will be here before you know it. I love all of the Halloween stamps that Sweet Pea Stamps carries but I have yet to color each and every one up. I really think Halloween needs to be a longer holiday, don't you think?

So for my card today, I used Terra Bidlespacher's Adellia:


I wanted to give her a sort of ghoulish, witchy skin color which I don't think I've achieved, lo but by using distress inks on all the papers and the edge of the image panel, I was able to really dull the more vibrant colors. That makes the green skin really stand out I think. Just don't look at her cheek make-up.... don't know what I was thinking!


The sentiment was cut from the background paper (old SandyLion - Jeepers Creepers I think) which I edged with Distress Ink. I had extra punched bats so I added two dots of red gel gloss for some eerie eyes.


Terra Bidlespacher's Adellia is also available as part of Plate #174

Definitely make sure to check out all the wonderful Halloween stamps available... perfect opportunity to use colors you wouldn't normally use. Hope you were inspired...... thanks for stopping by.
