Day 9 of 31 Days of Halloween

Today I am changing it up a bit and sharing an ATC with you! This is only my second ATC, so I hope I did a good job. Danielle and Lynette, please let me know if I did! ;}


This little sweetie is a digi from Wild Flower Kids. The WFK challenge this week is “Anything Goes” as long as you use a WFK image!


Here’s a closer look at this cutie. You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger. I colored her in with my watercolor markers, with the exception of her hair and skin, which was done with my colored pencils. I think she is so cute! My sister Pam was a pumpkin for Halloween many moons ago, and this image totally reminds me of her! If I can find any pics, I plan on using it on a layout.

How do you like my “Boo?” I think it came from JoAnns. It’s attached with eyelets. There’s a glue dot underneath it attaching the orange paper to the brown cardstock. And I didn’t want anything to fall in and get stuck, so I added some orange glitter! The “Hey Pumpkin” is from Cosmo Cricket.


I used purple ink and then embossed the edge with Purple Pearls powder, and I love that little bit of metallic the ATC has now. The purple cardstock you see is just what I photographed the ATC on.

Please be sure to hop around to the rest of the Wicked Blogs…listed on my sidebar. I am so inspired by everyone! This event is even better then I had anticipated!!! Have an inspiring day!

A cute ATC Alison, the image is very cute and the Boo embellie looks great.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful ATC with us at CSSC. :-) xx
I see I'm not the only one loving your ATC Alison. Like you, I had only done 1 before this week. It's an art form that so often gets forgotten in among the cards and altered items.
Love the embossed look round the edges, and your colouring is suberb
