A House of Cards

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Are you in a Halloween kind of mood?

Recently I was asked to play along with this week's sketch over at the Get Sketchy blog. I had so much fun with the sketch that I ended up making two cards. I kept with a Halloween theme for both, but one is more of a "pretty" card and other one is more "fun".

First is my "pretty" card. I used paper and a die-cut from Pink Paislee's Twilight collection. I love, love, love this line!



I painted the tips of the flower with Shimmerz Vintage Wine from the new Fall Vintage Collection. It adds just the right amount of color and shimmer to the flower.



Next is my "fun" card. For this, I also used paper and glitter chipboard from Pink Paislee's Twilight collection.



I used Shimmerz Spritz in Licorice, also from the new Fall Vintage Collection. I sprayed in on the chipboard bat pretty generously, and it pooled towards the bottom of the bat giving it a shimmering eeriness. I love the way it turned out!



Well, that is it for me today. Hope you my little cards help to get you in the Halloween spirit. Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
