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!
Yes, they do look happy together in a ghoulish sort of way. Very cute.
