Monster Mash - Take 2


Hi Lovely Bloggers...

OK, I'm here with another Halloween card...  it's from another of the August release at CC Designs.......  these are just THE cutest little monsters you ever saw!

I played again with this one, using Distress Ink blending on the tag shape..  again something relatively new to me but something I'm very much enjoying learning! 

Materials Used:
Images - CC Designs Monster Mash and Halloween Things
Sentiment - CC Designs Creepy Crawlies
Dies - CC Designs Cutter Layering Tag Dies, 
CC Designs Outline Dies for Images, Memory Box Fence Die
Distress Inks for Blending - Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Dried Marigold
Digi Paper 
Colouring - Copics
Hair - YG25, G99
Skin - E000/00/11, R20
Bandages - W1/2/3/5
Grave C1/3/5
I also used C9 for colouring the white surround when the images were die cut with the outline dies - I thought it gave a more halloween type effect than the usual white border.

I splattered water across the Distress Ink blending as I'd seen done - and was happy with the effect it created!  Then I drew the bats/birds flying across the moon freehand - eeek!!

Hope you're having a good week..

Big hugs

  5. Super Halloween card Christine...daren't think of that yet as I always do a big party for the littlies! Btw. 'mixing' fonts is just that... using a few bits from various ones together ;) and 'swashes' are the little swirly bits added to my sentiments and header HTH ;) hugs Viv xx

  7. Super cute card Christine! Love the inky background! Fantastic scene!

  8. I'm sorry to say that this really isn't spooky at all because it's all just too cute! And that's how I like my Halloween cards :-)
    The inky tag background is very cool and the water drops looks great...I feel I would get myself in a huge mess if I tried this so will stick to admiring yours and other's efforts I think!
    Big hugs, Kat xx
