Today was super rainy, it has been that way for 3 days now.  Very dreary outside, windy and perfect for crafting! So I got my Copics out and did some colouring. I have no idea what I'm going to do with this image yet, but she looks great on my table with all my Halloween decor.

The image is from The East Wind and I coloured her as if she was Elphaba - the wicked witch from The Wizard of Oz.  I also added some gems to her hair and a fuzzy green ring.


I'm really happy with how she turned out - colouring skin in green sure was something new!

Today I bring to you - Frank Stein!! Isn't he adorable? He is part of a trio set from My Scrap Chick that includes a Belly Box, Treat Bag Topper and a Card.  There's also a Frankie Stein Trio Set that I made last year, she'll make an appearance further down on this post.

All I did was trace out all the pieces and then cut them out with my Fiskars scissors.  For this set, I doodled around the edges in black pen, and used a white pen to accent the black cardstock and add dots in Frank's eyes.

I did the same with the little treat bag topper.  I'll share the card in another post so that for now you can enjoy these two creations.


Aren't they adorable.  I just realised that I forgot to add eyebrows and a scar to the treat topper - I knew I was forgetting something!  I filled the belly box and treat bag with foil covered chocolate.


And here they are reunited at last. Frankie was made for 31 Days of Halloween 2016, so she's a slightly different green than Frank.  You can see that there are different ways you can embellish your belly boxes.  Frank has doodled edges and Frankie has inked edges.

Today I have a cracker of a creation for you lol did you see what I just did there lol I have used a template from Crafty Ferret Downloads to create these festive crackers.  You can fill them up and add the traditional bang if you like, but I like to use them as gift boxes and fill them with Halloween treats, sparkles and some stickers.

I printed out the template and then transferred it to black cardstock.  Once cut out it all comes together really easily.  I added a Doodlebug Designs doily, paper strip and stickers.  I also wrapped the ends in Doodlebug twine, added some skull beads and some bling.


Here's a full and a half cracker.  One I've added the sentiment to the outside, and the other I added to the inside for a surprise.

Bubble, Bubble Toil and Trouble! I have a witchy poo for you today!  She's from Some Odd Girl and she's a digi image that I coloured in with my Copics.  I glossed different parts of the image and also added some Stickles and twine.  Then I matted the image on black cardstock before adhering to my card.

The card base is white, which I then added black cardstock and Doodlebug Designs papers.

I also added some purple liquid pearls and some coloured bubble-like stickers.  There's some washi tape, a fuzzy ghost and letter stickers.




I inked the edges of the green patterned paper and the thought bubble.  I loved using this paper as it's perfect for the image - lots of test-tubes and potions.

31 Days of Halloween - Day 14

It's the 14th of October and it's time for my 14th creation.

I have a special creation that I made make early in the year.  I made it for 31DOH because I just couldn't wait for Halloween!

I started with the candle stand and holder that I found at an op shop.  Then I created a cylinder with white cardstock and carefully wrapped Poe quotes around it.  Then I added the village outline, which is from My Scrap Chick.  I just cut it out with scissors, but the templates are all usable with cutting machines.

Once everything was in place, I then decorated with stamped images, acetate that I made into books, and little diecuts.  In the centre, I added a string of copper lights.  Lastly I put the glass dome over the top.

The top and the bottom of the dome is surrounded by black and silver fibers, and topped with foam shapes and leaves.  The bottom is wrapped with blood-spattered ribbon.
