Double, Double, Toil & Trouble Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!
Can you believe Halloween is just around the corner…I seriously wonder where this year has gone…ok, seriously the last two weeks because it’s already time for another Double Trouble posting! I’m late and I’m going to be in more trouble than I already am!!!
I think Halloween is one of my favorite holidays…we have a large pumpkin carving party and I love to decorate for fall. I tend to like the cute things about Halloween and not the scary so I was thrilled when Trouble Maker challenged us to “Skip the Tricks and Share the Treats of Halloween” Share the cute and cheerful side of Halloween or Fall with cute pumpkins, witches & ghosts.
As usual…my partners have “Framed Me” and I need your help! My optional twist is that you include a frame somewhere on your card to help me get out of “trouble”.
Finally…Double Dare has asked up to link up to the Paper Girls Challenge – I hope no one goes cutting them apart – they seem like a nice group of crafters!!!
Well, now all that is out of the way…would you like to see what I’ve been up to?
That’s right, it’s a spooky cute Halloween Card. I started with a Nectarine Base and then added a B&T from the Hello Pumpkin paper packet – I layers on some Willow and Lagoon onto which I had stamped a fence – over the fence I layered a black frame which although you can’t see it well in the picture I painted with my new black shimmer pen! I then layered my sentiment over the top of that. I knew I wanted to include the ghost because the faces of the B&T paper reminded me of a scene in a Casper cartoon where you could only see the faces of the ghosts. Although most ghosts are typically white I stamped mine in Mint and colored it with the clear shimmer brush which has given it the look of being “glow in the dark”
I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on “cute” Halloween and that you’ll pop over to our design page and link up a project…and don’t forget to add a frame!!!
