Day 23 of 31: Happy Spook-a-Ween with Tiddly Inks

Welcome back! It is Day 23 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I have a clean and simple (CAS) card to share. Something that is rather difficult for me to make. But, it's good to challenge yourself!

I used the Too Cute to Spook clear stamp set by Tiddly Inks. I colored her up with my Spectrum Noir markers. My daughter wants to be a witch for Halloween, so I think I will give this card to her on the Big Day.

I like the little frog peeking out from the brim of her hat. The sentiment is from the same set, and I stenciled the stars on with a Heidi Swapp stencil using Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

It was so hard not to add a bajillion stars, and lots of patterned paper. But, I like it like this. So it is now time for you to keep hopping! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar.. Thanks for stopping by. Have an spook-tacular day!

*I am entering my card in the Tiddly Inks Creepy Cute Challenge.


I adore this card! LOVE the lil witch and how you coloured her and her placement on the card!
