My most favorite Halloween image has got to be the Mummy, the Witch and the Pirate designed by Cristy Croll for Stamping Bella. This trio is just too cute and reminds me of so many little ones who will be flocking the neighborhood next week.
I used a combination of prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol and copics to color. Some things never change like using Bella's bestest paper and Memento Tuxedo black ink. You might remember that I colored this last year too. Well, I wanted to switch the colors up a bit and really like this combo. The bold red pirate outfit is my favorite. And I used E71, E74, E77, E79 to color the couldron. I always envision black but this is a lovely brown/black. The colors have neat names like Champagne, Cashew and Maroon and I never really dig them out so I gave it a whirl and love the result!
Design paper is from the Authentique 6x6 Glowing Bundle pad which you can find in the Bella shop. As you can see, it's perfect for fall and Halloween. I also used a piece of orange spiderweb and word paper from the Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows pad.
I know this is going in the mail so I chinced on embelishments - Mr. Postman loves to charge me lots of extra postage and isn't nearly as careful as I would be with my creations so this is going flat! Machine stitching and a simple sentiment I've had in my stash for ages finishes this off.
I'll be linking this up to Cristy's challenge blog for her Halloween challenge...hey when you're on a roll, you go with it.
Ciao for now,
