Day 11 of 31 Days: XOXO

Halloween is in 20 days!!! I can't believe it! I really need to get working on my family's costumes. But for now, allow me to share with you my latest creation featuring Dilly Beans images.

For this card, I used Mrs. Skellington Framed and Mr. Skellington Framed. Don''t they look happy together?

I used watercolor markers and Copics for this duo. I spent a lot of time on their heads...I really loved mixing the greens together and playing with the shades.

I found some fun paper from Prima that I thought looked really great with The Skellingtons. The "XOXO" is from the same Prima pack. It's a fun and kooky Halloween card, that shows a little bit of love. Which, yeah, I think is totally appropriate since my Anniversary is 2 days before Halloween.
Now it's time for you to keep hopping! You can head over to Christine's Blog to see what she's created for today. The entire Wicked Blogger Hop List is on my side bar.

Your images are coloured beautifully, I don't think I've seen watercolour markers. Are they hard to use?

I love Mr. and Mrs. Skellington! They are made for each other! LOL I guess that was sort of an unintentional pun. Love the colors you used... very fun piece!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
