If you love Halloween as much as I do, then you're going to FLIP OUT when you see what Christine has whipped up for this holiday!
Introducing Devilish Lucy!!
It's ok...you can squeal now! :D She's adorable isn't she?! By the way, I am assuming that's a wig because our little Lucy is far from old and gray! I colored her with my SU reinkers (Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose for her dress, Creamy Caramel for her face, Pretty In Pink for her cheeks and Going Gray for her hair - I just made a pun! lol) and I used Black Soot Distress Ink for her boots. Can you spot the new dies being released this month?? Yep, that half circle banner is AWESOME isn't it? And see those bats? YES!! We now have itty-bitty bats to play with!! :D Some fantastic additions to the growing ATS die collection, don't you think?!
I used the Cutter Circle Die to cut the logo from the new Halloween Logo's set out. Then I used some pinking shears to cut around the black cardstock matting. That ticket is also from the Halloween Logo's set and I used the large ticket die to cut it out. I made the panel behind Lucy by sponging a piece of white cardstock (cut with the Labels 2 nestie) with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then I spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Caramel Apple, so IRL it has a nice shimmer to it! Love that stuff! The papers are from MME's Mischievous collection (and have been sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink as well as distressed) and because I can almost never make a Halloween card without it, the inverted scalloped border is cut from a piece of black glitter paper from Michaels. Love that stuff too!
Introducing the new Meoples - Witches and Goblins!!
These cuties are so much fun to color because they're half the size of the Swiss Pixies and they fit so nicely on a standard card size! I decided to make a set with two of these kids in a 5"x5" card size. The papers are from an old MME Boo To You collection from a few years ago now and the sentiments are from the new Halloween sentiments set also being released this Thursday!
Both of these images were colored with SU reinkers and I used this week's Retro Sketches challenge #22 for my layouts. I rotated the sketch on the first Meoples card for a little variety. :)
Head on over to the All That Scraps blog to check out what the rest of the design team came up with and don't forget to add your name to the InLinkz list for a chance to win this set! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you again tomorrow for another sneak peek! :D
