One card, two challenges

I think it's my first time ever doing that but this card is for two challenges:
Phindy's Place - Fancy Folds
Stamp Something - Halloween Something

The cute ghost is, of course, from Phindy's shop - I just think it's hilarious the way he eyes the little dog very suspiciously! Colouring is done with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils (VERY little of the latter added). And the sentiment is from Raindrop Echo's Halloween Sentiments digi set at Whimsy. LOVE that set!!

The papers are MME, a surprise discovery in my stash after long whining that I don't have any Halloween papers.

Remember how I said in my previous post that I used ALMOST all my home made leaves up on one card - well, that's where the remaining two went, lol. I distressed all the papers with Memento Cantaloupe and Potters Clay and made some grass with MS border punch.

The bat is a freebie clip art I printed out, smeared with Stickles, blasted with heat gun and then gave him some eyes with white gel pen and black Copic Multiliner. Moon with bats is also a freebie clip art - ain't internet great!!

I would like to enter following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Change of Season
Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge - Fancy Folds
Oh la la - Nothing Floral
Crafts and Me Challenge - Halloween
Creative Cottage Challenge - Halloween
Stampin' Royalty - halloween
Everybody-Art-Challenge - halloween
Aly's Sunday Challenge  - halloween
Just Us Girls - use acetate (acetate swirl)

Thanks for looking and happy crafting
Hugs

Fantastic! What a very creative work of art! I love that ghost! I keep seeing that you work with both Copics and prisma pencils??? I'm not familiar with prismas, how/where do you use them and what's special about them? Must be something as you seem to use them lots! Happy crafting,Julie x

Sanna said...
