Trick or Treat! Day 7 of 31 with WW

Hello Bloggy friends! It's Wednesday, so I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge to share with you for my 7th of 31 Days of Halloween. You've been paying attention, right? If not, please visit the Smeared Ink Blog for all the details. This week for Wicked Wednesday, we are sponsored by Sami Stamps and the theme is "Trick or Treat."

I used Whiskers Under My Broom for my ATC. I colored the image using my Tombow watercolor markers and 2 techniques. Direct to paper, and with a palette, brush and water. That's a really fun way to use these markers! You can use an acrylic stamping bloc, scribble the colors you want to use on the block (you don't need too much), then paint it on with a brush. Use your water to blend and stretch the color. Easy and super fun!

I sprayed my orange cardstock with Iridescent Memories Mist, and I added some green glittered cardstock. My sentiment is from Stampendous' Life Words Perfectly Clear Set. I thought it was perfect for these two friends. That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the ladies from Wicked Wednesday over at the Blog. And be sure to take a peek at all of the Wicked Bloggers from the 31 Days of Halloween. They are all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
