Hey there! Today I have the card I made for an entry in this month's Scrapper's Delights challenge. 

I used a few different Scrapper's Delights images on this card: Ghosts, Halloween Door, and Scary Pumpkin 3.

I colored all of the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (color palette below).  I added the spider webs in the upper corners because the card was looking a little too plain. They were cut on the Silhouette Cameo from Black Shimmer Cardstock. The Background paper is from Fun Stamper's Journey. 

I made the card interactive by popping up one of the ghosts on a wire I twisted into a spring.

Dia De Los Muertos

Today I am sharing the Halloween or Day of the Dead card that I made for my sister this year. 

She's really into the Sugar Skulls and all that so when I saw this Viva Los Muertos set from Fun Stampers Journey I knew it would be perfect for her.

I used the small skull stamp and the rose stamp along with some clear embossing powder to create the background paper. 

Then I stamped the characters in Versamark and added black embossing powder to them. I colored the charcters with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils and unfortunately I did not write down the colors I used. 

I finished it off with some Nuvo Drops and the stamped sentiment on a hand cut banner.

Happy Halloween

Hey there, I'm just sharing a fun and super easy Halloween card I made. 

I created the galaxy background with the Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, glycerin and a white gel pen. This is a super fast and easy way to get some really cool background effects. I used Bud Green, Orange, Orchid, Marine and Black Aqua Markers on this one. (There will be a tutorial on this coming to the Spectrum Noir Blog soon)

I colored the pumpkin with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. After I colored the image I outlined it with a silver Spica glitter pen. 

Here is the Spectrum Noir Marker Palette:

*I also used TB9 on the outline, but did not add it to the palette*

Blend of the Week - Pumpkin Orange

I have been wanting to start doing a color blend of the week for so long! I finally made the time to do it. This summer has been a time for change and growing and really deciding where I want to go with my coloring and crafting. I have been neglecting this poor blog and that is one of the things I definitely want to change. I have had ideas for thing I want to do here for a long time, I just never made the time to do it. But now I have, starting with the Blend of the Week posts. 

Since Halloween is coming up soon I thought I'd start off with a pumpkin orange. This blend uses TN6 and 3 of the newer colors- BO4, BO3, and BO1. 

Tomorrow I will have a post featuring the card I made with this image.
