Trick or Treat.....

Well I just walked outside to take the garbage out and on this first day of Autumn it is actually warm out. Go figure! Yesterday we turned on the heat and today I will be opening windows!!!!

While looking at blogs and picking up some freebies I came across this little darling on the Rusty Pickle.  I just thought he was the cutest little thing.  I have a soft spot for my Teddy Bears so I decided to make a card with him.  My hubby states I need to expand and use more of my images so this is at his request!

I colored him with my copics and actually tried something new. I did the shading around him too, rather than using chalks.  I need some practice but I did like the way it turned out! I used C00, C1, C3 and O. The original did not have the spots on his little dog suit but I thought he looked like a Dalmatian since he was sitting next to a fire hydrant so I added them. The trick or treat bag and hydrant got a nice thick coating of glossy accents to make them shine and the candy and pumpkin got stickled! You know how I love sparkle!  My background paper was made with a piece of white card stock, my stamp pad and a stamp from Stampin' Up that I have had for eons.  I just randomly stamped the dog paw onto the card stock. I distressed the edges of my cut out puppy with my handy dandy scissors (note to self - need to get a distressing tool), added some orange ribbon and made a cute little ticket from some that my lovely friend Doreen sent me (thanks again) to finish the look!
