Something wicked this way comes!

It's Halloween and I'm so excited! I love Halloween! Candy, cute kids, scary teenagers, terrifying adults, costumes, more candy, and fun!

Here's a card that was way too much fun to make! Best of all, it came out the way I had envisioned it in "my mind's eye"! I LOVE when that happens!!!

I think Third Coast's Skull Witch (CM-231-L) from pg. 34 of the Halloween '09 is fierce. She certainly is in awesome shape. Unlike me. She was colored with Copic markers. Glitter pens added glimmer to the skulls' eyes and Glaze pens added dimension and shine. She was masked and then I stamped Pile O' Skulls (CH-693-CC, from p. 15 of the Summer '05 catalog) three times, masked them, and stamped some more! I masked the next batch of skulls, then stamped Shadow Cat Walking (CH-128-E p.11 of the Halloween '06 catalog) in VersaFine ink and then masked him too.

I pulled out the small Bricks stencil from The Crafter's Workshop, taped it down, and airbrushed several colors of Copic markers over the stencil onto the piece (and my hand). I lifted the stencil and went over the mortar with another Copic marker.

I then masked off the brick wall with Post-It notes, cut a circle mask from Eclipse tape, positioned it where I wanted, then airbrushed the sky and the ground.

I computer generated the sentiment on parchment-like paper, overstamped it with the Scroll stamp (DV-004-G, p. 25), and added some shading with Copics and chalk.

I matted the scene and added a Twigs Alteration diecut, added the sentiment scroll, and called it done!

I'm entering this card for challenges at Outlawz and Splitcoast (F4A88).

Thanks for visiting and have a great holiday!
