Lots of challenges & a DT Call!

There be lots of spooky themed challenges around this week and I dont normally do Halloween except one which I've already done but I won some digis over at Stitchy's the other week and I just HAD to use this one!  She reminds me of my littlest DD Molly who's going her first proper halloween party tomorrow in fancy dress ahhhh!

There's also a DT call over at Bearly Mine Designs which closes on 2nd November.  Donna does lush printable papers, many of them free!  I've got one of her CD's which is used often as its fab!  For this card I've used papers from Bearly Mine Designs, go check them out!

I've used an image called Can I go too? which is coloured with promarkers.  I've used a glue pen and ultra fine gold glitter on the sparkly bits, distressed the edges wth scissors and ink and stamped swirls from a paper artsy stamp plate (Hot Picks 1005)
All of the papers are Bearly Mine Designs and I've hand sewn silver cobwebs on the bottom of the easel.  I looked everywhere for a spider but couldn't find one (plenty of real ones mind lol!) so made this little guy out of Makins Clay.  Its actually glow in the dark clay as I have one huuuuuuge packet of normal clay which I dont want to open yet and a small pack of glow in the dark!  I've painted him in acrylics but his eyes still glow lol!

Right, there are sooooo many halloween challenges around this week that I'm going to be entering into quite a few so bear with me!

Next up is another pink creation (I'm liking my pinks lately eh!)  I used this image earlier in the week as part of a veeeeeery complex digi design but wanted to do her on her own too as she's just too darn pretty to be part of a crowd!  She's called Ice Princess and is by Stitchy Stamps.  I'm never qquite sure if she's wearing a hat or if its her hair, it doesn't matter either way and I quite like to give her a hat :)

This one is again coloured with promarkers and used the gold glitter, have added hot pnk iridescent gems, mother of pearl coated pearls, sparkly lace (I need more of that!)  The stopper is a load of crystal gems and a button and all the papers are from Bearly Mine Designs (Designer Extreme 3) with some distressing around the edges with pink distress ink.
