Day 23 of 31: Another Two-fer!

Greetings! Today is another day that I will have 2 projects to share with you. But this time, they are both Halloween. It is the 23rd of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I have a project for A Day for Daises and one for Left of Center.

This week for A Day for Daises, we are challenging you to "Make a Treat Item." I decorated a simple brown paper bag for my project. I colored the Pumpkin Head Friends using my Tombow watercolor markers, and the Indirect Coloring technique.

Then I used a couple of fun embossing folders for my background paper, and I inked them up. The candy corn has a chalk ink from Color Box, and the argyle has Gold Delicata ink from Imagine Crafts.

For Left of Center this week, we are sponsored by Limited Runs, and the theme is, "Use Your Skull."

I made an ATC using the Deadly Cupcake digi. I colored it with my recycled pencils from Tombow. I also sprayed my orange cardstock with some purple Dylusions spray. Then, I used some Aged Wine Embossing Powder from the Purple Frantage Encrusted Jewels Kit around the edges.

Please be sure to visit A Day for Daisies as well as Left of Center to see even more from these 2 fun themes. And don't forget about the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a boo-tiful day!
