The images that I received are just awesome and I'm having so much fun making Halloween items, not just cards. Check this out, it's a card featuring the Bat Motel from The Rubber Cafe. I also used the Frightful Halloween stamp.
First, I coloured the image with my copics (okay, I coloured 3 before I got one that I liked, but I knew you all were going to like this one too!), and then used one of my cast-offs to create a mask of the house. I used a sponge and 2 different blue inks to create the night sky. Something that I discovering with my copics - 'cause I've only had them 6 months and the learning curve is huge - is that if I wait a few minutes and then use the same colour again I can get some great shadowing/darkening. Take a look at my moon...only 1 copic used there, but the bottom is brighter...can you see it?
So, how does one get inspired to make Halloween cards in the middle of the summer (other than great Halloween stamps from The Rubber Cafe?) Twilight Music of course...not to dark, a little edgy, thinking of Edward. LOL! I'm slowly converting from a country music fan to a - I'm not sure what it's called - fan. Anyone else out there love Paramore?
