Tickled Pink Stamps Sponsors Forever Night



I was super thrilled when I learned that Tickled Pink Stamps was going to be sponsoring the Forever Night challenge blog! And even more excited when I found out the challenge was bling - "dark" (think emo, goth, punk) bling! Halloween is my favorite holiday so I was quite pleased to have an excuse to make a card for it in March.

I choose Lil Haunts Ghost Willow and printed her "big head" size before using my Cuttlebug and Nesties to cut her out in an oval. That fabulous bling framing her is all one piece and was a Michaels find! As soon as I saw it, I knew what I was going to do for this challenge. I was going to use it as a frame! Ms Willow always looks more like a cloaked witch to me than a ghost so that is the direction I took with her, right down to my sentiment (which is from Waltingmouse). I colored her with my Copics, using a touch of white gel and Stardust pens on her eyes. Papers are from my Halloween stash and I've had them for years. I HAD to have them at the time, bought them off eBay, and have been hoarding them ever since. They've only been used on a few cards so I thought it was time to break them out again. They are from Cosmo Cricket's Haunted line. Flowers are mix of I Am Roses and Recollections. I used one of the shapes from the Spellbinders Fancy Tags to add a little interest and added some black lace from my stash for texture.

Please head over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see what some of the other {PINK} ladies have created for this challenge. And then you'll want to want to visit "where creepy meets creative" and check out the Forever Night challenge blog. Their design team will have some bling-tastic projects for you as well. I hope you'll be inspired to play along!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E13, E15, E17, E19, R20, YG03, YG91, W8, V09, V12, V15).

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Addicted To Stamps Challenge: #25-Sketch
- Ruby's Rainbow: #24-Lace

I'll be back in the morning with my Fabulous Freebie Friday card for Sassy Studio Designs. You won't want to miss this image! She is an all-time favorite of a lot of people! Thanks again for taking a peek and for all the lovely comments!
