Day 7 of 31 Days: "Me & Pops"

Greetings and salutations! I's Day 7 of.... Wait! It's day 7 already?! This is the ONLY thing I dislike about doing the 31 Days...It's the constant reminder of how quickly the month flies because we always say which day it is. But I digress... It's Day 7 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I decided to use one of the newest Dilly Beans image, "Me & Pops."

I love these guys! Aren't they great?  This is another example of a totally fun image to color. And can probably use the "C" word for 'em too. But shhhh! I don't want people to start thinking I'm losing my edge with 2 "cute" projects.

I used watercolor paints on this image. It felt wonderful to paint. I love painting...

I used a bit of embossing powder to add some shimmer and texture to the card.

My sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Have you enjoyed the 1st week of October? Well, there is certainly more to enjoy! To visit all of the Wicked loggers, check out my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!


This is sooo cute! In a creepy fun way!

I love the image you chose - it's edgy enough to allow a little cuteness. Your painting skills are awesome - I adore watercolors but never brave enough to do it!
