On The Third Day of Halloween...



My true love gave to me 3 black cats! Cool! lol Welcome to a very special blog post! I was asked to be a guest designer for the day at Simply Betty Stamps for their 12 Days of Halloween event! Here I am on Day 3 to show you my creation! Yes, I missed days 1 and 2, but the fabulous thing is I can go back and complete them at any time before October 30th! Each day has a place to link your project when you complete the challenge. And there are some amazing prizes up for grabs! There is a daily prize, all to be announced on November 5th, along with several winners of the overall challenge. And get this, one person, the best of the best, who enters all 12 challenges will be chosen to be part of the Simply Betty Stamps design team for 2012!!! I don't know about you, but that sounds like an AWESOME prize to me!!! So in case you're like me and need to do some catching up....

On the third Day of Halloween
my true love gave to me...
3 black cats
2 trick or treaters
and an owl in a rotten oak tree!

For my card today, I selected Lydia the Living Dead Girl from the fabulous Steampunk Halloween collection at Simply Betty Stamps! I LOVE these images, and she was so much fun to work with! My image is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers and then the edges and around the image were sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I also tried what I like to refer to as some "deconstructed doodling" since the fabulous Jen Shultz of Decontrusting Jen (and The Deconstructed Sketch) is so fond of it. I have to say I was a little nervous taking a pen to my already colored image panel, but I really like the way it turned out! Since I needed "3 black cats" I added two brads with black cats and the word "hiss" on them to keep Miss Lydia's feline company. I also used a black glittered chipboard number 3 and the word "BOO" on the card. My papers are the from the gorgeous Authentique - Glowing pad. and I used my Martha Stewart spider web border punch and some Recollections flowers from Michaels to dress up this week's fantastic sketch from the afore-mentioned Deconstructed Sketch (#23). Ms Jen also happened to be the special guest designer for Day 2 so check out her gorgeous card here.

I hope you'll pop over to the Simply Betty Stamps blog to see all the creep-tastic Halloween projects the design team has created for this sppok-tacular event! Just like Betty, Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I was beyond thrilled to be invited to participate! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
