Halloween is Hoppin' at Tiddly Inks!

I was so happy to get this done in time for Tiddly Inks Halloween Hop!  The hop is running 6pm CST on July 22 to 6pm CST on July 24... and I have a feeling there will be a TON of participants for this one :)  For additional deets or to start hoppin', just pop over to the TI Challenge blog!



Now, on to the show :)  I chose Gossmere for my very first EVER TI image... I know!  Can you believe I've waited this long?  Isn't she freakin' cute?!  I just can't decide if she is a vamp or a witch... either way, she's got a princess complex, right?!



Digi:  Gossmere (TI)
Rubber Stamp:  Delightfully Spooky (TAC)
Paper:  Bazzill, PTI white & Neenah cardstocks
Ink:  VersaFine Onyx
Other:  Tim Holtz embossing folder, EK Success & MS border punches, spider confetti, MM felt flower, black felt flower (handmade), misc. gems, Scor-bug, silver glitter pen
Copics:  0, BV0000, BV20, BV23, YG01, YG03, YG91, G24, V01, V06, V09, V99


These photos are horrible... even clicking to make them bigger might not help.  I really need a little spot to set up so I can take pics at night without them turning out icky... dang it.  Believe it or not, but the plum violet cardstock matches her dress perfectly.  And I'm really happy with how well her blue-violet skin turned out  :)

What do you think?

Shelley said...

With that skin tone she must be a vampire ... and quite a lovely one at that. So many great ideas (the colour combos, the chain, the border punch designs) to remember from this one.
