ASM - Anything Goes ....

.... Good evening!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week is the ever popular Anything Goes.  Our sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis - who draws the most amazing images, ranging from cute through to quite scary!  The winner of this week's challenge will get three digis.  I've used a couple of Rick's images on my cards.

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Halloween Turtle; Impression Obsession - Is The Moon Out Tonight?
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Perfect Plum
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Squares #5 & #6
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Lucky Limeade; Copic Markers ; Wink of Stella Brushes - Clear, Green

I love this turtle, he's not too cute, but not too scary either, and he's a joy to colour.  I used the techniques I've been learning at the Online Card Class - Copic Colouring do the image.  I cut the image and mat layer out with square dies.  I used Copic markers to colour the mat layer so that it would match the image.  I didn't think the front needed a sentiment, so added that to the inside.

I made another Halloween card - and I think that I probably have enough for this year!

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Phineus Pucker; Impression Obsession - Is The Moon Out Tonight? Stampendous - Halloween Diamonds
Inks: SU - Lost Lagoon, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Graphic 45 DP - Steampunk Spells; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella Brushes

I decided to make him a zombie!  I coloured him with Copic markers and cut him out.  I cut a panel of design paper to go down the side of the card and added a verse on the front.  On the inside I cut a mat of design paper, I edged the white panel with orange and stamped a few spiders and a simple sentiment!

Two fun Halloween cards Deborah. Love how you've done that background for your first card ... didn't think it was possible to make a copics background --- so cool! And love the fun paper used with your second card ... perfect match for the image and sentiment. Loll xx
