Exotic Halloween.....


Hello all.  I am so excited with all the people that are visiting for the Sweet Pea blog hop!!! Aren't the new artist just great????  This is one of the very first Sweet Pea stamps that I ever got and have been waiting to showcase her.  Her name is "Exotic Halloween by ©ching-chou kuik".  I think she is a sumptuous way to celebrate Halloween. She can be purchased as a single stamp or on a sheet with 3 others.

The challenge this next two weeks at "In A Sweet Pea Dream" is to use the colors 
in your project somewhere.  It does not have to be a Halloween card and when you visit the challenge blog you will see that some of the DT have created projects with these colors that have nothing to do with the holiday! A $7.00 gift card will be given to the winner.


As most often I have colored my lovely with copics and then added stickles to parts of the image, got to have the sparkle!!  The glow of her candles got a nice thick coating of Glossy Accents.  My background was done with a Versa Mark pad and chalk. I used a technique for highlighting her that I saw on one of my blogging buddies posts. I loved the look and want to give her full credit for the idea,  Mustavcoffee of Crafty Musings. I took a double sided piece of DP and decided where I wanted my picture to pop out and started cutting down to the center.  After, I took each cut and an eyelet and adhered them to each other.  I left a bit of a loop on each one to give depth! I also took some crinkly seam binding ribbon that I made and whipped up the green and purple flower.


I think it kept the softness of this exquisite beauty!!! 
Don't forget to visit "In A Sweet Pea Dream" and try your hand at the challenge!

  1. Hiya Kym. You know, you are one amazing talented crafter. You always come up with something so special, in the way you design your cards, that brings out the very best in the image, whatever you choose. This is amazing, and I just love how you have done that centrepiece. Totally inspirational my friend. Happy crafting.
