trick or TREAT!

No tricks here!
It's time for some Blog Candy!!!!
First I wanna share a card with you,
then on to the candy details....
---------------------------------------------
This card sums up why I love making Halloween cards.... Crazy colors mixed together and more is always better, not less when it comes to embellishments! Prickley Pear had an awesome release of Halloween images this fall, I have enjoyed creating with them thoroughly!
NEW Fall Release <---- use this link to check 'em out!

I colored the scene with Copics, masking the moon using a circle punch and Eclipse tape, then airbrushing the creepy colored sky. I combined a few odd marker colors for the house, then added some highlights with a white gel pen - after the white ink dried I scraped it off so it would be dull and not shiny. 'Cause shiny houses are not very spooky looking! I stamped the little ghosts and then cut three of them out adding one along the winding path and two more peeking out from behind the main scene panel.

I love this Halloween sentiment! The scratchy broken up font is just perfect! Now I'm thinking I should have also added a black cat image along the path!!! Of course, I added some stitch marks as a finishing touch.

Now for the CANDY!!! Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps has put up these fun stamps and also two different packages of eight images of ATC transparencies as a treat! I will also be adding a few of my cards to the Candy pile! Leave me a comment on this post for your chance to win. I'll post the winner, using random.org, this Sunday night at 8PM.
