Halloween will soon be here :-)

Hi everyone - I wanted to share with you a bit of a showcase that I did.

It rained and thundered most of the day yesterday - so why not do a little something for Halloween :-)

Nikky of Polka Doodles has been at it again and come up with some fabulous downloads for Halloween. They are available now in the store, for immediate download.

I decided to make up an 8" by 10" artist board.  Firstly I placed some black card stock down.  Next I tore some green card stock and then inked it with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I used pre-coloured digis for this showcase (that Nikky had coloured herself are not in the download, they are for marketing purposes only, just the black and white digitals are available and I will be colouring some myself soon).  However, the tree, and house were coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers.  All the elements, including the fences , graves are all available in the download bundle.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the elements. (Please excuse the extra large photo's, I think my camera is on the way out - mind you I think I need to have my eyes tested too!)

I used some white ink around the moon and for the clouds.  To add depth I added some pop dots to a couple of the characters, the cat and the fence on the left.  I also didn't completely glue down parts of the tree and owl, again to add depth.

I really enjoyed putting this together :-)  The bundle has lots of elements, including some fabulous backing papers and embellishments to colour and therefore personalise to your taste and the digis can be downloaded individually and then you can make some wonderful Halloween decorations or cards.

Anyway, I hope you like it.  I'm not one to celebrate Halloween, but needs must, eh!
