Kitty Bee Designs #130 - Halloween/Fall!

Hi Friends! I hope you've been having a lovely week so far! I've had lots of fun creating projects lately and here's one more for you!  It's time for the midweek inspiration for Challenge #130 over at the Kitty Bee Designs Challenge Blog - Aloha Friday!

Challenge #130

Super big thanks to our sponsor for this challenge

For this challenge I'm sharing the adorable Winnie Wednesday Skull digi image from Polkadoodles! You can purchase her as a digital image either coloured or uncoloured. I decided to colour her in myself, but the precoloured image is really cute too!

I used some Prismacolor and Hobby Colour markers to colour her in after printing the image on regular white cardstock. I always print in 'fast draft' to lay down a lighter amount of ink and since the lines are fairly fine this resembles a no-line colouring technique, which is always fun to try!

I used some Lawn Fawn and Simple Stories papers and grabbed diecuts from Your Next Stamp, Kaisercraft, Waffleflower and Sizzix to cut out various elements for this card.

Inside, I stamped a cute greeting from a Lawn Fawn stamp set with Distress Oxide Ink.

I popped up some of the elements with foam tape and used the Simple Stories Vintage Halloween papers to add sentiments and those cute pumpkins. A bit of gel pen highlights adds some detail to the image to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge to see all the inspiration from the other awesome Design Team members - and enter your own project HERE for a chance to win!! Have a wonderful weekend!
