Hi there! Today is my turn on the Tombow blog to hop along with the gang at Fancy Pants. Fancy Pants sponsored us by sending each of the Tombow DT tons of goodies from the Oct 31 line to play with. I was thrilled when I received my goodies as I hadn’t started my Halloween cards yet and this gave me the perfect opportunity to get started.
For my first card I used the adorable Frankie digi image from By Lori Designs. Isn’t he cute? I colored him in using Irojiten Colored Pencils and Gamsol. These pencils really blend so easily with this technique.
In addition to the polka dot print from the Oct 31 line, the word “spooky” is from the Oct 31 Chipboard Elements pack. I used Tombow Foam Tabs to attach the image panel and spooky chipboard to the card. All other layers were affixed with Tombow Mono Permanent Stamp Runner.
For this card I started with a base of Gina K. Designs Sweet Mango cardstock. It is perfect with the Oct 31 line. I created the flower using some of the circles from the Filter Embellishments pack and the flourish from the Chipboard Elements pack to represent the leaves. I stamped Happy Halloween from Inkadinkado in black ink and colored in with a Tombow Dual Brush Marker. The sentiment and flourish were given a bit of sticky with the Tombow Glue Pen and then sprinkled with lime green glitter.
For my final card, in addition to the cool Oct 31 papers, I used Buttons and Glitter Cuts. I attached the striped panel and the Tricks or Treats glitter cut with with Tombow Foam Tabs, the buttons with Tombow Power Tabs. The buttons were tied with a wee bit of black/white twine.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me today. I would love to hear which card was your favorite and why.
