Aloha Friday Challenge #35 - Halloween

Aloha! There's a new challenge over at Aloha Friday Challenges today and the them is Halloween. The challenge is being sponsored by the wonderful Dilly Beans


I have to admit I really LOVE how this card turned out, I've started keeping some of my favorite cards to hang in my craft room and this one is definitely going up on the wall! 
 

I colored the image with my Spectrum Noirs and drew in the design for the background on the image. I just used some plain orange, purple and black CS and made the polka dot one by wrapping washi tape around a piece of green CS. I really didn't have a plan as I was making this, but it just all came together perfectly in the end. 


Stop by the Aloha Friday Challenge blog to see some more great Halloween cards and be sure to enter for your chance to win some Dilly Beans images from our sponsor.

Ve Vant Candy

Today I am sharing a card I made with the Ve Vant Candy image from Lacy Sunshine, I made the mistake of asking my husband's opinion on way I colored the image before it was completely finished and he did not like it, and was really honest about it. That's what I get for asking a man I guess. 



So I finished coloring it anyway and popped it on a card. And here it is:

 



I water colored the background and added some black sequins and googly eyes, then mounted the whole thing on a piece of chunky black glitter paper. 

I will be entering this card in the Halloween Challenge at Lacy Sunshine and the Anything Goes Challenge at Kit & Clowder.





OBG With Gus


Today we are sharing some more Oldie but Goodie images available in the Bugaboo Stamps store. This one is Gus Birthday Optional and this is the card I made for my father-in-law. Inside it says "growing up is optional".  I have a strange feeling I may have used the same image on his birthday card last year but can't remember for sure. If I did hopefully no one else will remember either! This is one of my favorite guy birthday images though so I wouldn't be surprised if someday he gets another one with it, lol. 

I colored him with my Spectrum Noirs and added quite a bit of Glossy Accents. I think I did a good job on this one because my son didn't believe that I made Gus. He was really insistent that it was a sticker I had bought.  The green enamel dots are some of the pony beads I had melted earlier this year. 

Hop on over to the Catch the Bug blog to see some more OBG projects by the design team.

Happy Halloween

Everyday Madison asks "Is it Trick-or-Treat night yet?" and everyday I tell her not yet and how many days are left (really should have made her a Halloween countdown this year). 



Anyway, I have another Halloween card to share today. This one is for the new Halloween challenge happening over at Paradise of Stamps. I used the Kidlet Pumpkin image from Bugaboo Stamps. Those kidlets have been some of my favorites this Halloween season! 


The bats are little stickers that I had actually made for the kids with my Silhouette but I saw them on my desk while I was putting this card together and knew they would be super cute on it! I stuck a few googly eyes around to look like more bats peeking through the dark and some enamel dots I made. The twine is from Doodlebug Studios and the paper is from a 6x6 pack I picked up at Target.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

A Random Fan: Anything Goes
Cardz 4 guyz : Halloween (Mine would be for a little guy)
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash: Halloween
Tuesday Throwdown: Halloween Colors
