Halloweeeeeen....

Hello everyone!! Sorry for going MIA, but I've been recovering from health issues, and I'm so glad to be back!! And just in time for Lollipop Crafts new Monday challenge...HALLOWEEN!!!! Create a card/project with anything Halloween related, and you're in!

My card today features TGF's Ian as Hallo Skeleton...

Over at the Farm, the final FFF challenge for the current team is to case any of the DTs. It's was so hard to pick one designer, they are ALL so fabulous!! But I ended up chosing 1LUVNMAMA and her card HERE. Mama's super talent always produces amazing work, just check out her blog! She's become a good blogging friend, and her beautiful projects always inspire me. But mine never comes out quite like hers! LOL!
Thanks to a fab tutorial by Amy Young at Color Me Copics, I TRIED to color Ian's face using the zombie skin technique. But not having the colors that Amy used, I had to improvise and used E00, W1, W3, and BV23. I also added a touch of YG00 along the edge of the mask and skeleton bones to make it look "glow in the dark".  Now that I look at the picture, I should have darkened his suit a bit more. Think I'll do that before I give it away yet to my October's Secret Sister. Can you believe it... I'll be early this month! LOL!!

Sorry for the long post...but it's been a while! hehee! Time to go over to check out more fabulous eye candy from the Lollipop girls, and all the deets on the current challenge. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs
and they are offering a fabulous prize of their CUTE DIGIS!

Thanks for all the visits while I was out...and for stopping by today!
Have a great day!! ;D
